High Energy Laser Application Effects

1 recipient will receive $1,645,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The effort addresses the analysis, development, and demonstration of lasers, in a laser test facility, using moderate power (10kW) laser sources at a wavelength (app. 1.6 microns), which is crucial for both weapon system applications and for use during the shipbuilding construction process. This analysis and demonstration of lasers at this wavelength are crucial to the development of the Navy's Free Electron Laser (FEL) and for solving problems encountered in laser beam delivery in ship manufacturing applications. This test facility would provide an economical way to establish the requisite target response information for military laser application, as well as providing a test bed for industry to try advanced concepts for laser applications to ship construction.
