Abstract
THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE IS ALLOCATING SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES TO EXPLORE DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL SHORT WAVELENGTH LASER (SWL) CONCEPTS INTO WEAPON GRADE SYSTEMS. THE DESIGN GOALS FOR THESE WEAPONS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED LARGELY ON THE BASIS OF LETHALITY DATA OBTAINED WITH IR LASERS. IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM, THE POTENTIAL OF HARDENING RESPONSIVE TARGETS WITH CONCEPTS TAILORED SPECIFICALLY TO COUNTER SHORT WAVELENGTH LASERS WILL BE EXPLORED ANALYTICALLY. THE EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT REQUIRED FOR AN EARLY VALIDATION OF SWL/MATERIALS INTERACTION EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS ALSO WILL BE ADDRESSED.
