Abstract
PSR WILL PRODUCE A DETAILED DESIGN AND SMALL SCALE BRASSBOARD PROOF OF CONCEPT HARDWARE VERSION OF A DYNAMIC LASER THREAT ILLUMINATION SYSTEM (DLTIS). THE PROPOSED DLTIS WILL BE CAPABLE OF ILLUMINATING FULL SIZE AIRCRAFT WITH LASER RADIATION AT VARIOUS WAVELENGTHS (E.E. 514, 532, 904, 1064 AND 10600 NM). FOR SIMPLIFIED SAFETY AND SECURITY, THE SYSTEM WILL OPERATE INSIDE A HANGAR OR SIMILAR ENCLOSED SPACE. THE SYSTEM WILL HAVE CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE LASER OUTPUT POWER, PULE WIDTH, PULSE CODE, DIRECTION OF ARRIVAL AND BEAM DIVERGENCE. THE SYSTEM WILL BE UNDER COMPUTER CONTROL, WITH THE CAPABILITY OF ILLUMINATING THE AIRCRAFT WITHA PREPROGRAMMED AND STORED SEQUENCE OF EVENTS. THESE SEQUENCES CAN BE REPLAYED ANY NUMBER OF TIMES, AND THE EXPOSURES WILL BE MONITORED BY THE SYSTEM. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM WILL BE MOBILE AND MODUALR, ALLOWING FOR VARIABLE ANGLE OF ARRIVAL AND EASE OF MAINTENANCE AND CHNGE TO SUIT NEW WAVELENGTHS. PSR HAS HAD EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN BUILDING SIMILAR LASER SYSTEMS FOR DOD CUSTOMERS, HENCE OUR PHASE I PROPOSAL INCLUDES PRODUCING A SMALL SCALE LABORATORY BRASSBOARD PROOF OF CONCEPT DLTIS. THIS BRASSBOARD WILL BE BUILT UP FROM CAPITAL EQUIPMENT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN PSR'S ELECTRO-OPTICS LABORATORY AND WILL NOT ADD MATERIALS COST TO THIS PHASE I EFFORT.
