Abstract

A high power, ultra-compact, lightweight, and low cost eye-safe laser source for a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system is currently under development in the framework of the NATO Science for Peace and Security project “CALIBER”, with the aim to be installed on small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for surveillance of borders and sensitive areas, with saving in manpower and equipment.
