Abstract
This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) addresses simulation modeling of optical Laser Radar (LADAR) systems. Because of the tremendous wavelength advantages provided by modern LADAR systems over conventional RADAR technologies, more advanced directed energy (DE) and surveillance systems are beginning to incorporate laser based active imaging and ranging technologies. There is a need to evaluate potential performance trade-offs between different Laser Ranger system concepts for the next generation Active Ranging System (ARS) on the ABL. The ARS has a requirement to measure the trajectory state vector (position, velocity, and perhaps acceleration), missile hardbody size (particularly length because it helps classify missile type), and plume characteristics for boosting threat missiles, at long ranges through the atmosphere. The program office needs a simulation capability to independently analyze, during the procurement evaluation process, the predicted performance of proposed ARS system designs based on the prospective contractor specifications.
