End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The invention pertains to detecting reflected energy and, more particularly, to radar and ladar systems with enhanced range. A reflected energy detecting device includes a transmitter for transmitting an electromagnetic signal and a receiver for receiving a reflected electromagnetic signal. An antenna connected with the transmitter and the receiver radiates the electromagnetic signal and captures the reflected electromagnetic signal. The antenna may be movable. A main controller controls operation of the transmitter and the receiver and the movement of the antenna. The reflected energy detecting device may further include at least one platform to support a remote reflector that is dimensioned and configured to redirect the transmitted electromagnetic signal in a desired direction, and a platform controller that communicates with the main controller and maintains alignment between the remote reflector and the antenna.
