Nanohmics/UNC proposes the Argus-EC wide spectral band laser threat sensor, with capability to provide real-time gathering of data regarding laser radiation directed against instrumented military assets. The proposed team comprises Nanohmics, Inc., and the Center for Optoelectronics and Optical Communications at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The successful Phase I reduced the primary technical risks related to the Argus-EC sensor development. In Phase II, we propose to fabricate, characterize, and flight test sensor hardware. The overarching goal is to transition the sensor suite from the breadboard hardware stage, through laboratory and environmental testing, to a flight-tested prototype device (TRL 6-7). We expect that at the completion of Phase II, we will have demonstrated and tested a wide-spectral-band laser threat sensor suite that is capable of detecting and geolocating laser irradiation threats from the VIS through LWIR bands, with a dynamic range of 106 or greater. The developed hardware will be suitable for flight on small UAVs and will be ready for transition to operational testing and evaluation.
