Abstract
We propose novel, more compact and inexpensive active sensors designed to operate interactively with passive IR seekers to provide enhanced performance in a number of important missile defense scenarios. We have identified a new approach to laser radar (ladar) design that exploits emerging monolithic laser concepts to produce a highly integrated, easily manufactured ladar components designed for integration into existing or planned sensor suites. Central to our approach is a multiwave transmitter with output wavelengths ranging from one to four microns in the near and mid infrared spectrum. The output of this transmitter can enable multiple active functions using detector/receiver components common to passive seeker systems.
