Abstract
First generation mid-infrared lasers contribute to the prohibitively high life cycle cost of infrared countermeasures systems, precluding their broad application in helicopters. We propose to develop a fiber amplifier-based IRCM laser transmitter that will contain all optical beams within optical fiber, eliminating adjustable, discrete, optical mounts, to significantly increase the laser's MTBF. The Phase I work will develop an in-line optical parametric oscillator to show an all in-fiber mid-IR laser.
