Laser Technology

We are leveraging successes with high-energy, solid-state lasers to advance electric technology through the Army's Robust Electric Laser Initiative (RELI), as well as under a contract for the Revolution in Fiber Lasers (RIFL) program from DARPA. By improving efficiency and beam quality. Both offer scalable and affordable approaches for military users.
