Paper Abstract

Active track and beacon illuminator lasers, which are critical components of most high energy laser beam control systems, have benefited significantly over the past decade from technology advancements that have enabled more than an order of magnitude growth in average output power while maintaining excellent beam quality. An overview of how high energy laser system illuminator requirements are developed, along with a short history and current status of diode-pumped solid-state laser illuminator technology development in the United States, will be provided.
