Abstract
Developments during the past decade have demonstrated coherent CO2 laser radar technology for a variety of military applications. The feasibility of incorporating heterodying CO, laser radars in airborne scenarios has been demonstrated for wire detection, terrain sensing, and high resolution 3 axis Doppler velocity sensing for navigation and hover. Additional multifunction capabilities for target discrimination and weapon guidance have been investigated and are undergoing further developments. This paper surveys the military applications, hardware configurations, results of flyable prototypes, and the technology status of multifunction CO2 laser radars.
