Directed Energy Systems Sector Update Uncovers Major Advances Within The Field

LONDON, January 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In recent years advancements in Directed Energy Systems have been slow and hardly moved out of the laboratories, however, 2012 saw a series of successful prototype development testing. This sees an important move for directed energy as it is now being prepared for deployment.

Returning for its 10 th Anniversary, Directed Energy Systems 2013 (5 - 7 March 2013, London) will hear from industry leaders and senior researchers in this area including:

  • Thomas Hagen , Future Systems Program Manager, MBDA  Germany
  • Michael Rinn , Vice President and Programme Manager, Directed Energy Systems, Boeing
  • RAdml (Ret ' d) Massimo Annati , Director, European Working Group on Non-Lethal Weapons
  • Dr Märten Risling, Experimental Traumatology Unit, Karolinska Institutet
  • Dr Michael Cathcart , Lead Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory, Georgia Tech Research Institute
  • Dr David Giri , HPM Consultant and Recipient of the 2006 IEEE John Kraus Antenna Award
  • Dr Jon Tattersall , Biomedical Science, DSTL

At the end of 2012, Rheinmetall successfully tested its new 50kW high energy laser based weapon. This represents a major advancement within the Directed Energy Systems community as it demonstrates the move from laboratory to the battlefield. A copy of the article is available to download on the Directed Energy System's website.

This is set to be addressed at the Directed Energy Systems event, with Colonel Fabian Ochsner and Dr. Markus Jung, presenting on Rheinmetall's high energy laser weapon programmes and its potential applications within the battlefield.
