Passive Coherent Laser Amplifier Combining
Small Business Information
7001 Shallowford Road, Chattanooga, TN, -
AbstractAccurate Automation Corporation (AAC) will have two existing NAVSEA 1 kW fiber laser amplifiers modified to correct a previously identified problem of four-wave mixing. After testing to verify performance of the refurbished laser amplifiers, AAC will conduct tests with this equipment using a passive coherent combining technique patented by Northrop Grumman Corporation. The testing will indicate the degree of coherency achievable with high power laser amplifier through this approach. AAC will also prepare an integration plan for incorporating the fiber laser amplifier system into an unmanned surface vehicle platform for use as a directed energy weapon.
