Title High-Energy Laser: Tomorrow's Weapon to Improve Force Protection.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 8p
Personal Author A. Angell
Abstract Think about the current laser designation capability used to direct precision-guided munitions (PGMs) to destroy an enemy target. Now, imagine replacing that laser designator with a high-energy laser (HEL) weapon that emits enough thermal energy to directly render a target ineffective without using a conventional munition.
