BAE Systems Books Funding to Demonstrate Laser Weapon

BAE Systems inked a Navy deal worth $2.8 million, to cover demonstration costs for a Tactical Laser System that could be integrated with existing U.S. Navy gun mounts.

According to the firm, “the TLS couples a solid-state high-energy laser with the weapons module to provide extremely precise targeting and counter-material disabling effects.”

“The Tactical Laser System provides a 21st century-directed energy weapon system with speed-of-light precision effects against surface threats, ” said Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager of Weapon Systems for BAE Systems.
