Abstract:

Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop a tunable laser system that will be suitable for use as an offensive laser system to defeat and destroy optical sensors that will also have the added advantage of being very useful as a laboratory instrument for the testing of eye-safe laser systems. Our approach will build upon proven laser technology and is, to our knowledge, the only way the Navy can accomplish the wide tunable frequency desired with the necessary beam quality. Our development approach will put us on the path to much higher power development in the future. When we meet the goals of this Phase 1 effort, we will achieve a significant step forward from traditional tunable laser sources, including any currently available nonlinear converters.
