Abstract
From their prior emergence in the military domain but also nowadays in the civilian area, unmanned air vehicles constitute a growing threat to the todays civilization. In this respect, novel laser weapons are considered to eradicate this menace and the vulnerability of typical aeronautic materials under 1.07μm-wavelength irradiations is also investigated. In this paper, Kubelka-Munk optical parameters of laminated glass fiber-reinforced plastic composites are first assessed to build up a basic analytical interaction model involving internal refraction and reflection as well as the scattering effect due to the presence of glass fibers. Moreover, a thermo-gravimetric analysis is carried out and the kinetic parameters of the decomposition reaction extracted from this test with the Friedman method are verified trough a comparison with experimental measurements.
