Abstract:

This program addressed the design, fabrication, test, and delivery of a developmental CO2 MTI laser radar. The primary goal was the construction of a feasibility model which could be tripod mounted, easily transported in the field, and yet withstand the rigors of field use without performance degradation. Operationally, the main targets of interest were vehicles and personnel within the range of 1.5 km. The equipment fabricated consisted of two units laser radar head and power supplycontrol panel. Complete control of the system from a remote location was provided through an umbilical cable. A programmable scanner was furnished which covered a 30 degree field at rates up to 60 degreessec, with scan widths from plus or minus 1 to plus or minus 15 degrees. Pointing accuracy, as well as readout accuracy, of 0.1 degree was implemented. The design accommodates either 115 vac or 28 vdc as the primary power source. A PbxSn1-xTe detector was fabricated.
