Abstract:

This report summarizes an in-house effort to optimize a laser source in a weapon firing simulator. Preliminary findings indicate that a 1-mw He-Ne gas laser is the most suitable, monochromatic display. This conclusion was reached after an analysis of the following parameters spectral output and eye response, power or energy output and laser safety, beam divergence and desired display, beam diameter, mode of operation, reliability, and weight and size.
