Abstract
The Airborne Laser (ABL) uses a megawatt-class laser with state-of-the-art atmospheric compensation to destroy ballistic missiles at long ranges. The system will provide both deterrence and defense against the use of such weapons during conflicts. This paper provides an overview of recent laser test results and the risk reduction approach being utilized to ensure program success.
