Abstract : The patent application relates to a laser designator boresight test tool apparatus for providing boresight measurements in smart bomb systems without the need for the critical stable alignment between the boresight test tool and the bomb system, and without the destruction or significant aging of the target material. The present boresight test tool apparatus utilizes a spectral conversion to accomplish the boresight alignment. (Author)
