OCA and Los Alamos Science win $2 million TR¥award for UV lidar

Jan. 1, 1995
OCA Applied Optics (Garden Grove, CA) and Los Alamos Science Inc. (Los Alamos, NM) won a Technology Reinvestment Project (TRP) award worth $2 million to build ultraviolet differentialabsorptionlidar (DIAL) systems for dual military and enviromental uses. The system will remotely detect chemical and biological hazards on the battlefield, as well as continuously monitor smokestack emissions.

OCA Applied Optics (Garden Grove, CA) and Los Alamos Science Inc. (Los Alamos, NM) won a Technology Reinvestment Project (TRP) award worth $2 million to build ultraviolet differentialabsorptionlidar (DIAL) systems for dual military and enviromental uses. The system will remotely detect chemical and biological hazards on the battlefield, as well as continuously monitor smokestack emissions. The design proposed for the military application will aid the US Army in detecting biological agents at distances of 5 to 100 km. The smokestackemissions monitor should lower the cost of compliance with the new Clean Air Act.
