Paper Abstract

The basic research and engineering work for developments of eyesafe radar transmitter are reviewed. The characteristics of two model transmitters are introduced. Laser output at 1.54 micrometers with 5 mJ of energy and a 60 ns pulse width was demonstrated at 15 Hz using a rotating prism Q-switch. The laser media is an experimental Er:Glass, designated QX/ER.
