SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SENTRY closely spaced object (CS0) space situational awareness system. THe SENTRY system leverages SA Photonics'' technology in LIDAR, LIVAR, and free space optical communincation by employing: SA Photonics'' innovative light source technology, the Acu-Point beam pointing, advanced optical design, high sensitivity photo detection and the BeamDirector beam steering unit. The result is unparalleled resolution at distance >1500km in packages with very low size, weight and power (SWaP). BENEFIT: SENTRY is able to resolve and track objects of interest that are less than 8cm at ranges that are greater than 1500km providing a revolutionary new capability in space situational awareness.
