Abstract

For Phase II, CAI proposes to develop a high-speed wavelength agile remote sensor capable of real-time high energy laser damage assessment diagnostics. The sensor offers high sensitivity measurements at long standoff distances. The resulting sensor is expected to operate wavelength agile at tens of Kilo-Hertz pulse rates, and be scalable to operational ranges of many tens of kilometers.
