As the aerospace and defense industry adapts to evolving challenges, it prompts innovation of modern, high-tech weaponry. One of these emerging technologies is in directed energy weapons (DEW), which are designed to neutralize long-range targets with pinpoint accuracy using highly focused laser energy, delivering an edge over traditional weaponry to counter arising security threats across all domains.
DEW can provide an endless magazine if enough power is available, thus eliminating the logistical problems of finite ammunition supplies and lowering the total cost per shot. Its speed-of-light delivery can neutralize distant targets while significantly reducing collateral damage. In addition, DEW offer a wide range of platform flexibility, capable of launching from large vehicles; ships at sea; fixed, land-based structures; and airborne platforms, among others.
