Abstract
This submission is based on the ONR funded Phase SBIR Phase 1 program, contract # N00014-03-M-0290 undertaken for SBIR Topic N03-111, Laser Beamrider Optical Countermeasures. An AMBS-based countermeasure system that can simultaneously address multiple IR heat-seeking missile and laser beamrider threats is proposed. Areté Associates is developing a novel Afocal MEMS-based Beam Steering (AMBS) technology that holds the potential for providing significant advantages over the current IRCM and Laser BeamRider Countermeasure (LBRCM) systems in a combined system.
