Abstract
Laser safety regulating the deployment of kW-class high energy laser (HEL) technologies in outdoor applications can rapidly cause significant planning and operations issues due to the ranges involved. Safety templates based on the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) rules can easily result in ranges of tens of kilometers for kW-class lasers. Due to the complexity of HEL-matter interactions, the assumptions underlying the aforementioned approach are however deemed inappropriate. In this paper, we identify a more suitable approach backed by experimental results.
