Effects of relative platform and target motion on propagation of high energy lasers

By Hayati Emir

Abstract

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimitedTo facilitate the study of engagement scenarios with high energy lasers, the Directed Energy Physics Group at the Naval Postgraduate School developed a laser performance code called Atmospheric NPS Code for HEL Optical pRopagation (ANCHOR). This code uses well-known analytical scaling laws and a scriptable user interface to allow the quick exploration of multi-dimensional parameter studies. Recently, a new capability was added that incorporates relative platform / target motion. This study demonstrates this new capability, and compares ANCHOR results with those obtained with the full diffraction code built into WaveTrain.Lieutenant Junior Grade, Turkish Nav
