Boeing and US Air Force Redirect Laser Beam

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2006
Using their aerospace relay mirror system, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems of St. Louis, and the US Air Force have demonstrated that a laser beam can be redirected to hit a target. Suitable for use with air-, ground- or sea-based high-energy lasers, the system is expected to reduce the atmosphere’s effect on laser beams, to extend a laser’s range beyond the line of sight, and to enable the destruction of ballistic missiles and other targets.
