Streak Tube Imaging LIDAR Aimpoint Selection (STILAPS) Missile 3-D Targeting Sensor
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
"The objective of this program is demonstrate a Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Beam Steering Mirror Transmit and Receive assembly and leverage the Streak Tube Imaging LIDAR (STIL) demonstrated previously by Aret¿ . Addition of a MEMS beam steeringarray to the STIL technology will provide a low cost high accuracy solution that meets the required to 2pi Steradian coverage at 1 kHz for a light-in-flight missile guidance system providing target detection, characterization and orientation determinationspecifically for aim point selection.A system with 5 imaging zones covering the 2pi sr is envisioned. Detection over a Zone at 1 kHz is accomplished initially at maximum range. Hand off to other imaging zones in order to keep the target within an imaging field of view is planned."
