Laser/Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Target Illuminator Technology
What technologies are available as a target illumination laser and LED for use on fixed wing aircraft?
DSIAC received a request for information on nonvisible lasers, LEDs, or other technologies for target illuminators at a high technologies readiness level (TRL) that meets given requirements. A DSIAC subject matter expert contacted a variety of original equipment manufacturers, government organizations, and contractors. A list of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) fiber lasers, which appear to satisfy the majority of the stated requirements, was compiled and delivered to the inquirer.
