Abstract
The proliferation of laser based weapons systems has led to the need for laser threat sensor systems that operate over wide spectral range from the visible to infrared and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure the irradiance levels seen in practice. OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on the complementary combination of CMOS readout integrated circuitry and diffractive optics to provide the full set of threat characterization metrics. In the Phase I R & D effort, OPTRA, Inc. will develop optical and electronics models, perform tradeoff analyses, predict system performance, and develop a SWaP estimate.
