Abstract

Current US Navy submarine periscope designs incorporate a direct-detection laser rangefinder (LRF) for ranging to both open water and shore targets. The US Navy has expressed the desire to develop a fiber-coupled device to allow the LRF transceiver to be located below the waterline. This will free up space within the periscope in addition to reducing the heat signature above the waterline. The Navy has also expressed a desire to reduce the probability of detection of the LRF by a threat sensor. Fibertek, Inc. proposes an innovative solution which addresses both of the Navys desires.
