Paper Abstract

We present a summary of recent imagery and tracking measurements made with the ROBS laser radar system operating at White Sands Missile Range. The ROBS instrument utilizes a 0.5 meter aperture optical system, 3 - 5 micron imaging cameras, and a coherent CO2 laser radar for range and Doppler measurements. The optical system is based on a roving fovea design, which enables signal target tracking over large angles at high track update rate, and rapid retargeting between multiple targets. Results of several field measurements are presented.
