Day 2

16:40 PM THE ADVANTAGES OF DEW AND HIGH-VELOCITY PROJECTILES OVER CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS IN A SPACE/HIGH-ORBIT ENVIRONMENT

  • Lasers can be mounted on satellites in stable orbit, using sustainable solar power with essentially unlimited ammunition, no need for resupply
  • What are the performance metrics to support extreme accuracy and immediate response thus enabling split-second reactions?
  • Explanation as to the advantages of no weight considerations once the weapon is in orbit and how this allows extremely high-powered systems to be utilised
