(Aug. 16, 2018) – Dr. Chris Lloyd, High Energy Laser Lethality Lead at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD), briefs Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Commodore Peter Leavy and his delegation at the NSWCDD Laser Lethality Lab during the RAN delegation's NSWCDD visit. Lloyd explained the importance of rigorous modeling and laboratory testing against target materials to ensure high energy laser systems are built that meet the requirements of the warfighter once fielded. NSWCDD is drawing on its knowledge of electromagnetic launchers, hypervelocity projectiles, and directed energy weapons, in addition to its established core capabilities in complex warfare systems development and integration to incorporate electric weapons technology into existing and future fighting forces and platforms.
