  7. Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser Systems (SCUPLS)

    SBC: GEOST, Inc.            Topic: N183139

    GEOST proposes to develop a non-lethal weapon system based on dual-pulse femtosecond-nanosecond generation of plasma effects (such as flash-bang, thermal, and intelligible voice) at range. In this approach, the femtosecond laser pulse creates a dilute plasma filament, location of which is controlled through the temporal chirping of the laser pulse. The subsequent application of a high-energy nanos ...
