Paper Abstract

This article describes work that has been undertaken to develop a suite demonstrator for the evaluation of the digital High Angular Resolution Laser Irradiance Detector (HARLID). HARLID is a module designed to estimate the angel of arrival of a laser beam. It response to radiation ranging from 400 to 1700 nm and covers a 96 degree field of view (FOV) with a resolution of +/- 1 degree in a plane. The main goal of the suite demonstrator is to characterize new generations of HARLIDs and to provide means to evaluate new configurations in order to establish the requirements for the protection of military platforms with laser warning receivers (LWR). The suite demonstrator is a good example of how an Ethernet network can be used to share information between various senors over a specialized network. Moreover, it allows building and studying a plurality of configurations without regard to the separation and the structure between the detection units. To our knowledge, it is the first time that such as approach is used in the field of LWR.
