Abstract
This solicitation seeks to apply novel Adaptive Optics (AO) technologies and high energy light based weapons to protect U.S. forces from Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) attacks. We plan to use our knowledge of AO to detect the launch, track and acquire the RPG projectile and then destroy or disable it with high-energy laser light. Our AO systems emit beams with minimized speckle and wander, resulting in tight diffraction-limited spots on targets.
