(FR) APPLICATIONS DE SYSTÈMES LASER À IMPULSIONS ULTRACOURTES
Abstract
(EN) Methods and systems for the generation of non-lethal and lethal effects using ultra-short pulse lasers. A laser source generates pulses at the direction of a controller and directs the pulses along an optical path to one or more high-speed beam steering devices, also directed by the controller, which then directs the laser pulses to achieve the desired effects. A computerized controller receives a specification of one or more desired effects for one or more targets and calculates a distribution of ultra-short laser pulses as well as the required characteristics for each of the pulses.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour la génération d'effets non létaux et létaux au moyen de lasers à impulsions ultracourtes. Une source laser génère des impulsions en direction d'un dispositif de commande et dirige les impulsions le long d'un trajet optique vers un ou plusieurs dispositifs de guidage de faisceau à grande vitesse, également dirigées par le dispositif de commande, qui dirigent ensuite les impulsions laser pour obtenir les effets souhaités. Un dispositif de commande informatisé reçoit une spécification d'un ou de plusieurs effets souhaités pour une ou plusieurs cibles et calcule une distribution d'impulsions laser ultracourtes ainsi que les caractéristiques requises pour chacune des impulsions.
