Development of Directed Energy Laser Weapon in US and Its Threat to Ballistic Missile
Li Qingyuan(Beijing Institute of Strength & Environmental Engineering, Beijing, 100076)
The advantages of laser weapon in future war,the development and evolution of high power CW laser weapon in US and the threat of laser weapon to ballistics missile are briefly described. Theoretically several damage mechanisms and damage time of storage tank of ballistic missile due to laser irradiation are roughly estimated and a necessity of ballistic missile against intercept of laser weapon in the first ten years in the next century is also indicated. Finally, several technical ways and research work about anti laser threat that should be carried out are recommended.
