Abstract
RECENT ADVANCES IN STATE-OF-THE-ART LASER TECHNOLOGY SHOULD PERMIT THE DEVELOPMENT OF DETECTING AND LOCALIZING TORPEDOS USING BLUE-GREEN XENON CHLORIDER LASERS, STEERED BY BRAGG CELLS TO DEFINE A PROTECTIVE ENVELOPE OR PERIMETER AROUND A MOVING SHIP. BRIMROSE PROPOSES TO EXAMINE CONVENTIONAL MIRROR STEERED SYSTEMS, AS WELL AS THE ACOUSTOOPTIC LASER BEAM STEERING METHOD TO COMPARE OPERATIONAL ADVANTAGES UNDER VARIOUS TACTICAL AND WEATHER CONDITIONS. THIS SYSTEM MAY HAVE AN ADDED ADVANTAGE, IN THE SUBSURFACE MINES IN OR NEAR THE PATH OF THE SHIP MAY ALSO BE DETECTED WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO RENDER THEM IMPOTENT. SHOULD THIS WORK BECOME CLASSIFIED, BRIMROSE HAS A SECRET FACILITY CLEARANCE.
