Abstract:

This report summarizes efforts in support of the BMDOAFSMC Space Based Laser program. The first major work section was in support of BMDO. Another series of major efforts supported AF SMC. These efforts were broad in nature and reflect changing priorities during the report period. Section titles reflect the majority of work performed, but there is overlap among sections The final major section was in support of the NSWC ABCS program, within the BMDO SBL technology base. Schafer was supported by subcontractors, including Photon Research Associates PRA and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne UtUC. Subcontractor reports will be referred to appropriately in the body of the main report, but will be included in their entirety as Appendices. Some of the work reported is classified and will be contained in a separate classified Appendix. A small proprietary Appendix is also included under separate cover. Finally, some of the efforts were competition sensitive to either of the contractor teams during the SBL Concept Definition Studies CDS. Due to the restrictions imposed by the competition, these efforts are reported only in summary.
