Paper Abstract

The area of laser sensing is vast. This review will be limited to some examples of laser sensing of relevance for defense and security applications especially those of relevance to countermeasures. Examples from the areas ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), target acquisition/recognition, warning/protection and some miscellaneous applications such as positioning, tagging, communication and weapon guidance will be given. The laser sensor can itself have a multifunction capability and will probably not be the only sensor in a system. Future possibilities of powerful multisensor systems using new device technology will be discussed.
