ABSTRACT: SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SENTRY threat awareness system. The system integrates the active and passive sensor subsystems we have developed over a wide range of programs. The active sensor combines a high performance fiber optic source with high sensitivity coherent detection and micro-radian optical beamsteering. The passive sensor exploits our experience in high sensitivity visible and IR systems for night vision products. The integrated system results in a long range active sensor for characterization coupled with the passive sensors for object detection with a package weight with low weight and power consumption. BENEFIT: The SENTRY system will allow long range detection and characterization of space objects in a very small and lightweight package. As"space junk"increases in desirable orbits, the detection of objects will be critical to protect the vehicles.
