Paper Abstract

The chemical laser has a record of steady, successful technology development culminating in the largest scale operating lasers. These existing lasers have been used to establish a first-order feasibility of strategic defense. They are currently being used to acquire the effects and vulnerability data to establish directed energy weapons requirements for robust systems. Furthermore, the chemical laser technology is quite promising as we project into the future and address defense requirements with advanced lasers.
