3Fire Control SystemsRecommend moving Fire Control Radars to Category XI with all other radarsNeed further technical expert input for any additional DTAG recommendations
4Lasers(ITAR Tier2) Lasers designed exclusively for energy directed weapons;(ITAR Tier2) Lasers for target designators containing standard or encoded designator pulse formats;(ITAR Tier2) Lasers specifically designed for infrared countermeasures;(EAR Tier2) Ultrafast Lasers X picoseconds or less in temporal duration.
5Thermal Imaging Systems Methodology of ConclusionsSome focal plane arrays have become widely availableJust having a focal plane array does not make a defense articleCJs issued confirming dual use control for multiple items containing a USML focal plane arrayWide Proliferation into US and foreign commercial products and applications for thermal imaging systemsAutomotive - Online processingManufacturing - Security and SurveillanceGas detectionUtilities Maintenance
6Thermal Imaging Systems(cont’d) (ITAR Tiers below) Thermal imaging systems with any of the following:(T2) Laser target designator(T3) It has been designed for weapon mount on a defense article(T2) It incorporates countermeasures such as filter or other mechanism to defend against lasers or infrared or I2 blinding/disabling systems.(T2) It has been designed to specifically identify and track defense articles
7Thermal Imaging Systems(cont’d) (ITAR Tiers below) Thermal imaging systems with any of the following (cont’d):(ITAR T2) Incorporating a defense article laser range finder;(ITAR T2) Incorporating a US Gen III image intensification tube or better.
8Thermal Imaging Systems(cont’d) (ITAR T3) A thermal imaging systems:Incorporating a defense article focal plane array andIt has range performance greater than X when using “NV Therm” CalculationsNV Therm Parameters (atmosphere, target size, etc) must be determined jointly by USG and industry.Range “X” must be determined and set at an appropriate level based on current technology.If interchangeable optics, largest optic should be used for the calculation.
9Image Intensification Systems (ITAR - T2) Night Vision or other Night Sighting “Systems” with a U.S. Manufactured GEN III (or greater) Image Intensification Tube(s)
10Inertial Systems(ITAR T2) Inertial navigation systems with specified performance better than X nautical miles per hour during exposure to each of the following:vibration levels equal to or greater than Xg rms; andshock values equal to or greater than X g; andexposure to temperature range X; and angular rates greater than X degrees per second
11Inertial Systems (cont’d.) (ITAR T2) Inertial systems that designed to meet requirements for space radiation hardening;(ITAR T2)Inertial systems having functions specific to missile systems.NOTE: High dynamics, severe environment and performance capability within those environments are the military differentiators.
12Parts and Components(ITAR T2/EAR T2) Two dimensional infrared focal plane arrays having individual elements with a peak response in the wavelength range exceeding 1,200 nm but not exceeding 30,000 nm (cooled focal plane arrays) that exceed X when performing a figure of merit calculation. [FOM is based on sensitivity, pixel pitch and number of pixels or resolution.]FPA’s will be EAR T2 if they fall below the FOM threshold.
13Parts and Components (contd.) (EAR T2) Two dimensional Infrared focal plane arrays based on "microbolometer" material having individual elements with an unfiltered response in the wavelength range equal to or exceeding 8,000 nm but not exceeding 14, 000 nm (uncooled focal plane arrays) are controlled on the CCL (Suggested placement in existing ECCN 6A002.a.3.f.)
14Parts and Components (contd.) (ITAR T2) Visible focal plane arrays that exceed X when performing a figure of merit calculation;(ITAR T2) Uncooled photon detectors that exceed X when performing a figure of merit calculation;
15Parts and Components (cont’d.) (ITAR T2) US Gen 3 image intensification tubes with a FOM of XXXX or more;(ITAR T3) US Gen 3 image intensification tubes with a FOM of XXXX or less;(ITAR T2) Countermeasure filters;(ITAR T2) Image intensification tubes containing autogated technology, halo X or less or including countermeasure filters;
16Parts and Components (cont’d.) (ITAR T1/T2) Inertial measurement units capable of achieving performance equivalent of the following in an inertial navigation configuration:vibration levels equal to or greater than Xg rms; andshock values equal to or greater than X g; andexposure to temperature range X; andangular rates greater than X degrees per second
17Parts and Components (contd.) (ITAR T2)Gyros - Measurement criteria and environments TBD / under study;(ITAR T2) Accelerometers- Measurement criteria and environments TBD / under study;(EAR T2) Note: Laser diodes or stacked arrays are controlled on the CCL. (ECCN 6A005)
18Parts and Components (contd.) (EAR T3) Note: Yag laser rods are controlled on the CCL
19Parts and Components (cont’d.) (EAR/Below T3) Night Vision or other Night Sighting Kits, Components, and Accessories(EAR/Below T3) GEN II Image Intensifications Tubes and Night Vision or other Night Sighting Systems with GEN II Image Intensification Tubes
