Abstract
This program will develop the next-generation air-cooled laser transmitter for underwater mine detection and other active sensor systems. The technical approach to be investigated incorporates novel high-gain laser pump modules in an oscillator-amplifier configuration to produce tens of Watts average power output at 532 nm. Air cooling eliminates the use of liquid cooling fluids in the laser transmitter. This feature results in significant increase in efficiency and reliability and savings in size and weight.
