Paper Abstract

This paper discusses recent advances in the development of test and evaluation instrumentation for military laser range-finder (LRF) and designation systems. Recent strides have been made at Santa Barbara Infrared (SBIR) in the development of sophisticated active ranging simulation instruments for range accuracy and receiver sensitivity measurement, integrated measurement modules for laser pulse energy and temporal characteristics, and pulsed laser diode targets/sources for shared-aperture IR/laser sensor test and evaluation. In parallel with these activities, NAVSEA has led the development and validation of state-of-the-art reference standard radiometers used in the calibration of narrow-pulse laser systems at 1060 nm and 1550 nm. This paper will describe the application, capabilities, and performance of SBIR's active ranging, laser measurements, and pulsed laser source modules, and NAVSEA's high-performance 1060/1550 nm radiometric instrumentation.
