News ItemAEgis Uses Laser Lab to Conduct Testing

May 2, 2014 –

The AEgis Technologies Directed Energy team is deploying a new laser weapon system called the High-Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator. A follow on effort to the successful flight tests at White Sands in 2013, this project consists of integrating the AEgis high-energy laser system onto an unmanned aerial vehicle to test the laser. The team has been working to build a system that can provide laser characterization and lethality data, as well as atmospheric data for airborne targets. The Laser Lab, at the SS&TP, has been the center of R&D efforts.
