Pranalytica proposes a program to bring the current generation of MWIR (out-of-band) pointers to a TRL of 7, along with a number of mission critical improvements, including: 1. Reduction in the exit beam divergence to <0.5 mrad; 2. Reduction in the maximum diameter of the pointer to <2.0; 3. Reduction of the overall length of the pointer to <8.0; 4. Weight no more than 20 Oz; 5. Increasing the average power output from the QCLs to 2.5 W (T); 6. Operation over temperature range of -20C to +50C; 7. Shock/vibration hardening including transit drop test; 8. Water (immersion) and dust proofing of the pointers (meeting IP67 requirements). Pranalytica will deliver five (5) pointers meeting the above specifications.
