laser jamming

laser jamming

[′lā·zər ¦jam·iŋ]
(ordnance)
An electronic countermeasure in which a continuous-wave laser directs jamming energy back to a hostile laser receiver to prevent it from interfering with the use of laser rangefinders, radars, and tracking equipment during an attack.

The purpose of this contract is to acquire a laser beam analyzer essential to the proper functioning of expert mid dga activities (establishment of spatial energy distribution in the military equipment incorporating a laser beam emitter such beams in part of the security of goods and people; characterization of laser beams to further the activities of self-protection and laser jamming mid dga).
According to Elettronica, the system is 'readily exportable', not being affected by export limitations (ITAR regulation), and allows the customer to load proprietary laser jamming code libraries.
Northrop Grumman and BAR Systems are poised to begin testing different on-board laser jamming prototypes aboard airliners belonging to two US carriers during August.
A significant performance improvement can be achieved if sufficient IRCM-laser energy is available to radiate laser energy over a much wider spot size and initiate laser jamming with the remote designate signal from the search radar.
Boldstroke synthesizes the best attributes of prior generation laser jamming systems to meet the size, weight, and power requirements of both light and heavy rotary-wing platforms.
These performance tests illustrated the missile's resistance to numerous infrared decoys and electromagnetic radiation immunity--earlier ground trials revealed the seeker's resistance to laser jamming as well.

Rocky Mountain Radar is unique in the radar detector industry due to its military radar and laser jamming experience, and is committed to pro-actively and dependably supplying its retailers with FCC-compliant products.
Unlike the existing ALQ-144 jammer, which generates a dumb, omni-directional "bubble" of IR energy around the airframe, the ATIRCM system must automate a seamless response of missile warning and laser jamming to spoof threat missile seekers at a distance, complemented with smart flare dispensing.
The program will focus on massively parallel signal processing in focal plane array (FPA) technology, considered necessary to address future strategic and tactical system needs of multi-function active and passive thermal imaging and laser jamming avoidance not addressed with current FPA technology.
