Paper Abstract

An optical polyspectral sensor has been developed and tested which calculates the magnitude and directional velocity of an incoming projectile to queue a reactive countermeasure. This paper describes the sensor modeling, sensitivity analysis, and experimental results of a sensor consisting of four sheets of light. Sensor application could be extended to all projectiles that present a measurable laser radar cross section to the sensor.
