Recent advances in ultra-high-power lasers, including thefree-electron laser, and impressive airborne demonstrations oflaser weapons systems, such as the airborne laser, have shown theenormous potential of laser technology to revolutionize21st century warfare. Military Laser Technology for Defense, includes onlyunclassified or declassified information. The book focuses onmilitary applications that involve propagation of light through theatmosphere and provides basic relevant background technology. Itdescribes high-power lasers andmasers, including the free-electron laser. Further, MilitaryLaser Technology for Defense addresses how laser technology caneffectively mitigate six of the most pressing military threats ofthe 21st century: attack by missiles, terrorists, chemical andbiological weapons, as well as difficulty in imaging in bad weatherand threats from directed beam weapons and future nuclearweapons. The author believes that laser technology willrevolutionize warfare in the 21st century.
