In this video, Bill Evelyn of Excelitas Technologies introduces Jim Pomager of Photonics Online to his company's High Angular Resolution Radiance Detector, or HARLID. When HARLID is installed on a high-value military asset — such as a tank, helicopter, fixed-wing aircraft, or even a ship — it determines whether a laser is irradiating the vehicle, and from what angle the beam originated. The detector is mounted onto an existing black box (or something new on the aircraft) in four different sections, and then it tells you if any laser between 905 and 1550 nm is lasing your vehicle, so you know if you're being targeted or rangefinded for targeting.
