Abstract: An eyesafe, Q-switched, laser system for target identification, ranging, and gated viewing purposes features a Resonant Pumped Erbium (RPE) laser, which exhibits a longer storage lifetime that minimizes the number of diodes needed to pump optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) or Raman converters. The RPE laser is in band to I2 devices.
