Abstract
Laser device technology has developed rapidly in the laser few years and it is used in many applications spanning the civil and military sectors. The military operational use of laser technology has been responsible for highly significant improvements in many weapon systems, such as guidance accuracy. Recent developments in solid-state laser technology, in terms of its efficiency and size, have lead to an interest in the use of this technology for countermeasure applications. This paper considers the current status of laser technology and its potential application to countermeasure systems. This review outlines approaches to defining a laser-based system so that the device is compatible with the whole system.
