Abstract:

The report outlines the progress made toward completion of the Multi-Mode High Energy Laser Transmitter System MMHELTS in the period from 6 September 1966 through 15 May 1967. In addition, it discusses design changes required for enhancement of the operation of the equipment in the field. Areas which TRG believe to be necessary additions andor logical improvements to the operational capability of the overall system are discussed in detail. The overall configuration of the high energy system has not been changed from that in the design exhibit, submitted to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base on 1 September 1966. The ruby length of the Q-switched system, however, has been reduced to a total of 17 inches. The overall length has been divided into one Brewsters angled 4 in. Q-switched oscillator followed by 13 in. of active amplifier. The 13 in. amplifier section consists of a 4 in. cavity followed by a 9 in. cavity both of which are Brewsters angled. All ruby rods will remain 15mm in diameter. The status of the dynamic boresighting system development effort is also discussed herein. Author
