  • Patent number: 9726462
    Abstract: A method for local stabilization of a radiation spot formed by a high energy laser beam includes receiving radiation reflected by the target object, where the radiation reflected by the target object passes through the same optical path as the high energy laser beam. An image processing is performed by analyzing and comparing the image of the illuminated target object or part of the illuminated target object to at least one image of the illuminated target object or part of the illuminated target object produced at a prior point in time. A correction signal is computed, with which an optical correction device is actuated. A filter correction signal is produced by a filter device, while a controller correction signal is produced by a fine tracking controller. Finally, the correction signal is formed from the filter correction signal and the controller correction signal.

  • Publication number: 20160184924
    Abstract: A method for local stabilization of a radiation spot on a remote target object, where the radiation spot is formed by a high energy laser beam that is aimed at the target object by a high energy radiation emitter, the includes illuminating the target object is illuminated by an illumination beam that is aimed at the target object by an illumination device. The method also includes receiving, by an image acquisition device, radiation reflected by the target object that is illuminated by the illumination beam, where the radiation reflected by the target object to the image acquisition device passes through the same optical path as the high energy laser beam. An image processing is performed by analyzing and comparing an image of the illuminated target object or part of the illuminated target object acquired by the image acquisition device to at least one image of the illuminated target object or part of the illuminated target object produced at a prior point in time or to an image stored in an object database.
