Summary. Department of Defense (DOD) development work on high-energy military lasers, which has been underway for decades, has reached the point where lasers capable of countering certain surface and air targets at ranges of about a mile could be made ready for installation on Navy surface ships over the next few years.

Introduction Issue for Congress. This report provides background information and issues for Congress on three potential new weapons that could improve the ability of Navy surface ships to defend themselves against enemy missiles—solid state lasers (SSLs), the electromagnetic railgun (EMRG), and the hypervelocity projectile (HVP).

1 Any one of these new weapon technologies, if successfully. NRL FACT BOOK 1 The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is the Department of the Navy‘s corporate laboratory, and it reports to the Chief of Naval Research. As the corporate laboratory of the Navy, NRL is the principal in-house component in the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) effort to meet its science and technology responsibilities.

The AN/SEQ-3 Laser Weapon System or XN-1 LaWS is a laser weapon developed by the United States weapon was installed on USS Ponce for field testing in In Decemberthe United States Navy reported that the LaWS system worked perfectly against low-end asymmetric threats, and that the commander of the Ponce is authorized to use the system as a defensive cturer: Kratos Defense & Security Solutions.

Naval Applications of Tech Written by Terence Bennett, Naval Applications of Tech discusses how emerging and disruptive technologies can be used to make the U.S. Navy more examines potential and evolving developments in the tech industry, communication platforms, computer software and hardware, mechanical systems, power generation, and other areas.

This book presents a scientific assessment of free-electron-laser technology for naval applications. The charge from the Office of Naval Research was to assess whether the desired performance capabilities are achievable or whether fundamental limitations will prevent them from being realized.

Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division FOREWORD This handbook is designed to aid electronic warfare and radar systems engineers in making general estimations regarding capabilities of systems. With sufficient fire control, there is no reason why lasers can’t be quite effective for the small, slow target set.

Interestingly, the anticipated target set suggests that the most useful application for lasers will be on land as anti-drone weapons. Navy Shipboard Lasers for Surface, Air, and Missile Defense: Background and Issues for Congress.

Navy Shipboard Lasers for Surface, Air, and Missile Defense: Background and Issues for Congress. [Ronald O'Rourke; LIBRARY OF CONGRESS WASHINGTON DC CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE.;] -- Department of Defense (DOD) development work on high-energy military lasers, which has been underway for decades, has reached the point where.

The word "laser" is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are finding ever increasing military applications -- principally for target acquisition, fire control, and training. These lasers are termed rangefinders, target designators, and direct-fire simulators.

laser in military application Early Rangefinders were made from Ruby Lasers which were then replaced by Nd/YAG systems which had the advantage of being invisible, therefore could not be seen by the enemy, and less dangerous to the human eye.

For shooting down aircraft and missiles and for killing small boats at sea there are already laser weapons in development and in service.

However it is most unlikely that most armies would want laser rifles or pistols even if they were legal under. The United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is the corporate research laboratory for the United States Navy and the United States Marine conducts basic scientific research, applied research, technological development and prototyping.

The laboratory's specialties include plasma physics, space physics, materials science, and tactical electronic : –present. This book mainly addresses the applications of lasers in the manufacture of various industrial components.

The most widespread industrial application of KrF excimer lasers has been in deep-ultraviolet photolithography for the manufacturing of microelectronic devices (i.e., semiconductor integrated circuits or “chips”). From the early s through the mids, Hg-Xe lamps had been used for lithography atand nm wavelengths.

The benefits of lasers, such as ablation, bacteriocidal and detoxification effects, as well as photo-biomodification, have been reported to be useful for periodontal pocket therapy, and the application of lasers has been suggested as an adjuctive or alternative tool to Author: Alex Smith.

Three new ship-based weapons being developed by the Navy—solid state lasers (SSLs), the electromagnetic railgun (EMRG), and the gun-launched guided projectile (GLGP), also known as the hypervelocity projectile (HVP)—could substantially improve the ability of Navy surface ships to defend themselves against surface craft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and eventually anti-ship cruise.

How lasers work. Before you can understand how a laser works, you need to know how an atom can give off light. If you're not sure how this happens, take a look at the box how atoms make light in our introductory article about light.

A laser is effectively a machine that makes billions of atoms pump out trillions of photons (light particles) all at once so they line up to form a really.The short answer is ‘no,’ as I will explain.
