To get ready for the SBL-IFX, the Air Force needs to build a new test facility, a sophisticated vacuum chamber that will allow engineers to shoot the laser in an atmosphere-free environment, as it would in outer space.
The high-power beam generated by the SBL-IFX laser is relatively flat, but not perfectly flat.
The beam director primary mirror for the SBL-IFX is between 2.4 and 3.2 meters in diameter.
