Paper Abstract

The Active Range of the Optical Systems Test Facility was established in 2003 to allow for rapid development and demonstration of active electro-optic technology in a system context, investigate critical phenomenology issues in a repeatable environment, and enhance expertise in electro-optic technology. The test facility consists of four major parts: a control room, a 50-m range with installed ladar systems, a far-field emulator comprising of a 1-m primary mirror and zoom optics, and a dynamic target manipulator for full-scale (1-m) targets. This paper will focus on the capabilities of the Optical Systems Test Facility and present some examples of laser radar experiments and data taken in the range.
