We describe a complete solid state 1.5 terawatt, 150 femtosecond laser system operating at 10 Hz repetition, based on titanium-doped sapphire amplifiers and use of the technique of chirped-pulse amplification (CPA). The design and performance of the system is described. Special emphasis on the tunability of the system from 760 nm to 860 nm is also discussed.
