Abstract
This Phase I project proposes an improved laser designator module. This improved module combines diode-pumping with a unique ceramic laser medium and innovative thermal management to provide a system that is small, lightweight, and able to be fully-operational in less than 30 seconds. This design is potentially 5x lighter than current designators, with equivalent optical performance.
