Laser Rangefinder Receivers
Apr 2013Voxtel Inc.
BEAVERTON, Ore., April 29, 2013 — Voxtel Inc.’s new line of laser rangefinder receivers (LRFR) are suited for compact, low-power, weapon-mounted man-portable and unmanned aircraft applications. The ROX LRFR reduces laser pulse energy requirements by a factor of five or greater, or it can extend the standoff range of existing lasers by two times or more.
Sensitive throughout the 950- to 1550-nm spectrum, including the eye-safe spectral range beyond 1400 nm, the LRFRs are designed for sensitivity, high dynamic range (70 dB) and high damage threshold (5 MW/cm2). The product features reduced part count, and the device allows system integrators to use low-power lasers. Wide spectral response allows compatibility with older generations of 1064-nm lasers as well as newer, eye-safe 1550-nm lasers.
Into a hermetic TO-8 package, the products integrate Voxtel’s low-noise Deschutes indium gallium arsenide avalanche photodiodes with custom detector biasing and signal-conditioning application-specific integrated circuits, programmable configuration and control processing circuits.
