Abstract
ABSTRACT: SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of the SENTRY multi-function laser system. SENTRY incorporates SA Photonics high energy fiber optic technology and AccuPoint beam control system to enable precision detection and tracking of space objects BENEFIT: Orbital planes are getting increasingly populated with space debris. Objects as small as 1 cm can cause severe damage to satellites. SENTRY has the promise to to enable tracking of objects a small as 1 cm with to a range rate accuracy of better than 1m/s from ground based facilities. This enables the Air Force to implement evasive maneuvers before a critical satellite is damaged
