Paper Abstract

Weapons delivery systems frequently use laser designators which require boresighting with the visual line of sight. For systems based on the Nd .YAG laser (A = 1 . O6jnrt) , this may be achieved by a boresight collimator with a second harmonic generating crystal in its focal plane which reradiates collimated, visible light (A 0 . 53/nfl) . The conception, design and testing of such a device will be described along with a comparison with alternative technologies which demonstrates its superiority in terms of conversion efficiency, damage threshold and design versatility.
