High-Powered Directed Energy Laser Projects: Destroy the Target, Not Everything Else


Applying the stable and repeatable characteristics of lasers to high-powered directed energy applications has ushered in a new era of efficient weapons for the military. The development of these weapons comes with challenges that users of high-powered lasers have been addressing for years, although now on a much higher power scale for military use.

The correct laser power levels and stability are necessary for the development of military weapons. In addition, ensuring that these lasers destroy only the target in test is crucial to the safety of the personnel, facility, and other equipment in the vicinity. How is this accomplished? How are these solutions best used? This 30-minute Webinar discusses these issues and how recent technological advancements in laser capture and analysis have been applied to high-powered directed energy projects.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
