Paper Abstract

Raytheon Electronic Systems is under contract from the DARPA Advanced Technology Office to design, fabricate and deliver the Modular Miniature Imaging Sensor (M2IS) incorporating a Er:glass eyesafe laser rangefinder. The M2IS is a rifle-mounted system that integrates a high- performance multispectral sensor with an eyesafe laser rangefinder and a digital compass. Dual FOV reflective optics provide capability to acquire and identify targets at ranges of several kilometers. The LRF and compass facilitate hand-off to remote fire power. M2IS provides the soldier an integrated surveillance, targeting, and fire control system that consumes less than 6.5 W and weighs less than 7.5 lbs. This paper reviews field data acquired with the first deliverable sensor and compares measured performance with previously acquired laboratory test data. Projections for improvements with a higher power laser, planned for incorporation in the second deliverable sensor, are summarized.
