Cockpit Laser Beam Incidents 

"Federal agents are looking into two incidents in Colorado Springs, and one each in Cleveland, Washington, Houston, Teterboro, N.J., and Medford, Ore., according to law enforcement and transportation officials, some of whom spoke Thursday only on condition of anonymity." -(AP) USA Today Updated 1/2/2005 11:12 PM

LaserBeam CoverUp: This is hard to believe. This guy has great aim/speed considering how fast a jet moves at 3,000ft - and to be able to hit a pilots eyes? Where do you get a laser like that? And besides the USA Today article from 1/2/05 says the FBI are investigating 7 incidents of lasers beams in cockpits in multiple cities? And would it really be able to blind a pilot long enough to cause the plane to crash?
A man who initially claimed his daughter aimed a laser at a helicopter was charged after he told federal agents that he pointed the light beam at two aircraft, authorities said Tuesday.

Since green direct injection laser diodes aren't readily available, this pointer is based on the use of Diode Pumped Solid State Frequency Doubled (DPSSFD) laser technology. A high power IR laser diode at 808 nm pumps a tiny block of Nd:YVO4 generating light at 1,064 nm which feeds a KTP intracavity frequency doubler crystal to produce the green beam at 532 nm.
