26 January 1979 The Defense Department Exemption
Author Affiliations +
In July 1976 an exemption from the Federal laser performance standards on tactical military laser systems was issued by the Bureau of Radiological Health (BRH). The exemption had an immediate impact upon tactical lasers then in production. The intent of the exemption was to assure some system safety features in tactical lasers while recognizing the military requirements which necessitated a stronger reliance on operational safety measures.
