Abstract:

A Small Business Innovative Research SBIR Phase II effort, entitled High Temporal and Spatial Resolution Laser Beam Diagnostic Sensor seeks to develop a passive sensor for diagnosing a remote lasertarget interaction. A remote passive sensor has the potential for greatly improving the quality of test data that seeks to characterize a lasertarget interaction since on-target instrumentation is often difficult to place and of limited capability. The passive sensor being developed under this effort only requires the incoming photons from the remote interaction it is basically an optical recorder. Since at this stage of the effort there will not be a high-energy laser interaction available for observing, it will be necessary to simulate the optical signature of one by creating a diffuse light spot for testing the proposed detector.
