Paper Abstract

We report the first technology demonstration of the use of an IR fiber cable in an IRCM system for missile jamming. The IR fiber cable contains sulphide glass fibers which possess low loss, high strength and high threshold to laser damage. The fiber cable was used to transmit the output from a laser operating in the 2 - 5 micrometers atmospheric window to a Jam Head located remote from the laser. The demonstration was successful and fiber cable performed remarkably well and without damage.
