Abstract
Generally, detection and recognition of a target can be made at distances greater than those for positive identification. In an effort to extend the identification. In an effort to extend the identification range, Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc. (SEO) proposes to develop a concept for Non-Cooperative Combat Identification by sensing the vibrations of targets with Doppler Laser Radar. Vibrational signature measurement with Doppler laser radar has been successfully demonstrated using CO2 lasers. Issues of size, cost, weight, and reliability of the laser have prevented deployment of these sensors. Recent developments in two micron solid state lasers can allow vibrational signature measurement in a compact, reliable sensor. Eyesafe operation is maintained at this wavelength, as is the ability to penetrate obscurant and dust on the battlefield. The proposed Phase I effort draws on past and on-going activities at SEO to prove the feasibility of target identification, and to develop a preliminary design of a prototype sensor. The effort will include an analysis and assessment of available signature data, a parametric design study of the sensor parameters, and development of a top-level, prototype sensor design.
