EOCM-Class Laser System


EOCM-Class Laser System


DRDO has developed a portable dual-role EOCM laser system suitable for both anti-sensor as well as dazzling applications with an operational range of 2.5 km. It is basically a frequency-doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser capable of producing dual wavelength output at 1064 nm (IR) and 532 nm (green). While the IR output is used for anti-sensor applications, output in green iDEALly suits dazzling operation. The system comprises a laser head with associated sighting system, an electronics unit, a power pack, and a tripod stand. It has a day/night sighting telescope target acquisition and weighs 30 kg (can be carried by two persons).
Salient Features
Gross pointing : Pan/tilt
Laser firing mode : Manual/auto
Pulse repetition frequency : Single pulse/1 pps
The system has been tested for its efficacy against various optoelectronic sensors including silicon PIN photodiodes and APD (representative of laser range finders and target designators), CCD cameras representative of target acquisition systems) and night vision devices.
