Detecting laser light [DSEI15, D4]

18 September 2015

Excelitas Technologies is showing its automated High Angular Resolution Laser Irradiance Detector for the laser warning systems market, together with the new heated YAG-optimised silicon quadrant detectors for precision guided munitions at the Excelitas/Qioptiq Stand N7-120.

Laser warning systems detect direct and indirect scattered laser light from laser rangefinders, laser designators or beamrider laser-aided targeting systems. They aim to detect light throughout a 360º azimuth in various elevations and angular resolutions.

They provide the crew with audio and visual warnings, can initiate countermeasure procedures and can be fitted on aircraft, vehicles, ships or static perimeter facilities.
