A review of the extensive program of the pioneering research and development of high-power lasers and laser radar undertaken in the USSR during the years 1964 to 1978 under the scientific supervision of N.G. Basov is presented. In the course of this program, many high-energy lasers with unique properties were created, new big research and design teams were formed, and the laser production and testing facilities were extended and developed. The program was fulfilled at many leading research institutions and design bureaus of the USSR Academy of Sciences and defense industry.
