Boeing HEL-MD – High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator

“Boeing has developed and tested a mobile, solid-state laser beam control system—the
High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator—that counters targets such as rockets, artillery
shells, mortars and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
During 2013 testing at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, HEL MD destroyed
more than 70 mortars and an Outlaw UAV using a 10-kilowatt laser. In subsequent
testing at Eglin Air Force Base in 2014, HEL MD acquired, tracked and targeted mortars
and UAVs in a demanding maritime environment.” (Boeing)
