Recent advances in high powered laser diodes and fiber optic coupling a low efficient integration of laser systems into existing gimbal systems. A high power, divergent beam can be used to illuminate a scene providing enhanced performance in poor weather, the recording of registry and augmentation to existing night vision devices. This paper describes the enabling technologies, applications and performance or recording alphanumeric.
