“…Conventional eye safe laser sources using diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) and optical parametric oscillator (OPO) technologies are too large, inefficient, and unreliable to be deployed on future autonomously-guided ground and air platforms. It has been demonstrated that pulsed eye safe fiber laser sources provide critical performance advantages for LADAR systems because they can generate short pulses (<10 ns) at high repetition rates (>20 kHz) that enable increased range resolution and rapid data collection, all in a very compact and robust package compared to other laser technologies [1]. Fiberbased laser transmitters also leverage known benefits of fiber-based sources for field deployment, which include high efficiency, small footprint, flexible form factor for packaging and the elimination of large bulk optics and their associated alignment / stability challenges.…”
