Paper Abstract

This paper presents the latest developments in instrumentation for military laser range-finder/designator (LRF/D) test and evaluation. Santa Barbara Infrared (SBIR) has completed development of a new integrated laser test module supporting a wide range of laser measurements including range accuracy and receiver sensitivity, pulse energy and temporal characteristics, beam spatial/angular characteristics, and VIS/IR to laser co-boresighting. The new Active Laser Test Asset (ALTA) incorporates all the functionality of the previous Active Range Module (ARM) and Laser Test Module (LTM) in a form factor suited to both modular/portable EO test systems and standard product configurations. Key discriminators of the ALTA design include a three-color, fiber-coupled laser source (1064, 1540, and 1570 nm), a simplified optical path design, and enhanced laser output energy density in all three wavebands.
