Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.R.14. Multi-Wavelength Multifunction Laser. Develop and demonstrate high efficiency, compact, laser diode pumped, wavelength diverse laser source in the 0.26 - 5 micron spectral region and system controller software for multi-functional applications. By FY96, develop high (up to 1 Khz) repetition rate laser module with multiple wavelength outputs from 0.26 - 5 microns for countermeasures ( near IR, mid IR), obstacle avoidance, biological agent detection, rangefinding, enhanced target recognition, and laser radar for integration with vehicle target acquisition sensors. By FY97, complete software for limited functional applications and integrate laser module with Target Acquisition ATD. By FY99, complete development of multi-application software and demonstrate common approach to multi-function and multi-application laser source.

Supports: Dismounted Battlespace, Mounted Battlespace, Depth and Simultaneous Attack, Battle Command, Early Entry Lethality and Survivability.
