Abstract : This report covers the field testing of a 1-1/2 in. FPS vidicon and Gallium Arsenide laser, used as an air base perimeter surveillance device. Testing included probability of recognition of personnel when the system was pointed by an AN/PPS-12 Radar, and recognition of passive cooperative targets. Aircraft were observed as targets of opportunity. As a result of the field tests, requirements for a field deployable system were found. These requirements came from the system parameters found to be most effective. They include a narrower field-of-view on both the illuminator and camera (6 degrees was used during testing), more illuminator power (18 watts was used) and ground level deployment.
