High Power Laser Drivers

Model 773 Diode Driver

AMI offers a complete line of laser diode driver systems and modules for military applications including direct illumination and diode pumping. Patented techniques allow such products to generate narrow, high-power pulses at high repetition rates and/or CW output in the smallest footprints available.

AMI has developed numerous diode driver designs in a variety of packages for easy integration into customer platforms. Diode driver products provide safety features such as feedback current control, over current/voltage protection, enable/inhibit, and dump circuit functions to prevent damage to laser diodes.

Model 758B.1

Based on the field proven performance of AMI’s 758 Series Laser Rangefinder Receivers, the Model 758B.1 extends the capabilities even further with outstanding double-pulse discrimination. This allows a weak target to be seen through a close, partly obscuring strong target. Multiple Target Resolution is 12 meters typical over 6 orders of magnitude with the second pulse 10dB down.
