Abstract
We propose a solution to the Navy"s laser weapons warning problem. The proposed solution employs a combined approach of extending the wavelength spectrum and dynamic range of current State of the Art laser warning systems. The proposed wide optical bandwidth will be achieved by adapting previously developed methods. The system will exploit on going design work created for visible multi-threat optical systems and leverage advances in FPA technologies. The optical bandwidth will require multiple diffraction gratings integrated with reflective wide FOV optics. FPA enhancements will address anticipated dynamic range requirements
