Abstract
The beam quality in the LADAR applications is greatly affected by optics quality. Of particular importance are the structural requirements. MER in conjunction with SAIC will develop innovative designs for THAAD advanced LADAR applications based upon ultra-lightweight SiC-composite technology. The Phase II transition will be based upon collaboration with BAE.
