Laser Weapons are particularly suitable for operations requiring high precision, fast, scalable effects and for defence against low-cost targets in large numbers.
MBDA Germany is advancing high power lasers in developing an integrated systems approach for laser weapon systems.
- Immediate effect on target
- Low optical detectability
- Low costs for logistics/maintenance
- Very low costs per operation
- Scalable effects on target / possibility to escalate
- Very precise, extremely selective
- No collateral damage caused by ammunition
- No procurement, storage or transport of ammunition
