Abstract
This SBIR Phase II proposes the development and delivery of a compact, space qualifiable, diode-based seed laser system that utilizes a digital controller to allow autonomous acquisition of lock to the required wavelength in remote environments for multi-wavelength flight and space-based lidar applications. Successful development of this technology, due to its compact, efficient, and reliable design, is an important step towards enabling deployment of future space-based high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) systems for remote sensing systems, as well as improving the autonomous performance of deployed and developing ground and flight-based HSRL systems.
