The Key to Enabling Directed Energy Applications

Optimizing laser system SWaP 

The use of lasers for directed energy (DE) is a broad and diverse space; DE applications range from lower-powered, man-portable lasers used to eliminate airborne drones to eliminate man-portable platforms to extremely high-powered lasers in high-altitude platforms for the destruction of boost phase  intercontinental ballistic missiles.

In this white paper we will discuss:

  • Three leading DE technologies 
  • Power requirements of directed energy solutions
  • How to optimize for size and weight requirements for laser systems
