Caption: Developed to protect large fixed-wing platforms, Indra's Manta (MANpads Threat Avoidance) multi-spectral multi-band Dircm uses a relatively large, but powerful, chemical laser supplied by Rosoboronexport in Russia, although work on a compact version is underway.
A COIL device was installed in a C-1 30H in late 2007, and during a test on 7 August 2008, the ATL aircraft fired its high-energy chemical laser through its beam-control system, which acquired a ground target and guided the laser beam to it, as directed by the ATL's battle-management system.
The BILL, part of the ABL's beam-control/fire-control system, is used to measure atmospheric turbulence which would degrade the beam quality of ABL's megawatt-class chemical laser. The BILLS laser beam illuminates a small spot on the target missile and measures the distortion of reflected light caused by turbulence in the air This information enables a deformable mirror to make compensating corrections to the ABL's chemical laser beam.
The high-power chemical laser is expected to shoot down an enemy missile during tests in the fall.
ABL is equipped with a powerful megawatt-class chemical laser designed to defend against hostile ballistic attack.
A high-energy chemical laser was installed on a C-130H in December, thereby achieving a key milestone for Boeing in the Advanced Tactical Laser (ATL) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration programme.
The megawatt-class deuterium fluoride chemical laser, which lies at the heart of the THEL, is a very mature technology.
Additionally, the study concluded that the solid-state-laser jammer proposed by Northrop Grumman posed technical risks that the ATIRCM program, already delayed by problems with its own chemical laser, can ill afford.
Marquet of SDIO reports that a space-based chemical laser is farthest along, having about 15 years of research and development behind it.
The program calls for TRW to field and test a deployable deuterium fluoride chemical laser at the company's facilities.
In 2004 it achieved "first light" from its primary chemical laser. In 2005 it accomplished the first flight with its beam-control subsystem, and fired the laser at lethal power levels and durations.
Adding to the appeal is that solid-state lasers are much more compact, and less noxious, than chemical laser systems such as the one in the works for the 747-centric Airborne Laser.
