Paper Abstract

An electronically, scanned laser radar has been designed and is currently being developed which has unprecedented agility and speed. The agile scanning of both the transmitter and receiver is controlled by the variable reflectance of a V02 film on a cathode ray tube (CRT) faceplate. Electron beam heating is used to create reflecting spots on the VO2 film which, in turn, control the transmitter laser beam direction. Components for the laser radar are currently being developed and tested. Experimental results are in complete agreement with predicted analytical results.
