Day 1

14:00 PM INSIGHTS FROM RESEARCH INTO THE EFFECTS OF HIGH-POWER WEAPON LASER RADIATION ON THE BATTLEFIELD

  • The impact of the laser system itself on the target, in terms of effectiveness (burn time), accuracy, range etc.
  • The effects of radiation on crew members – how these are already minimal, can be reduced further, and why it is key to inform public perception accordingly
  • What the impact of HP laser radiation means for this system’s future use on the battlefield
