Title: Eyesafe Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Laser for Laser Ranging
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: W9113M-06-C-0076
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

We propose a novel approach, based on emerging photonic crystal fiber technology, to generate high peak and average power in multi-kHz repetition-rate pulses at eye-safe wavelengths. The proposed optical source is configured to be packaged in a compact and rugged fashion, exhibit low power consumption in compliance with requirements of airborne applications, and produce an output of excellent beam quality. If successful, the work accomplished through the Phase II of this program will result in the delivery of an eye-safe laser transmitter ideally suited for a wide variety of military 3D imaging LADAR systems.
