This paper discuses the DELE lethality assessment methodology and explains requirements for experimental data and algorithm development within the laser lethality and vulnerability area. current applications and data sets cover a broad range of laser parameters and materials properties. In addition, new lasers, new materials, and new applications continue to be rapidly added to the area. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the audience to the formalized process/discipline of formulating vulnerability criteria for different High Energy Laser systems by emphasizing the laser/materials phenomenology. Some of the DELE laser facilities and diagnostic capabilities are reviewed.
