Over the past decade, the Mid-Infrared Advanced Chemical Laser (MIRACL) and SeaLite Beam Director (SLBD) have been completed, moved to the High Energy Laser System Test Facility (HELSTF) at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, and integrated into the largest and most powerful operational high energy laser system in the U.S. The MIRACL/SLBD system has since been used for the development and demonstration of high power optical components and beam control techniques. High power propagation, tracking and beam control experiments over horizontal and near vertical beam paths have been conducted. Successful demonstrations of the vulnerability of both subsonic and supersonic in-flight targets to high energy laser radiation have also occurred.
