The US Navy Deploys Its Secret Weapon: The Laser

The US Navy has revealed its secret weapon: lasers built into warships capable of impressive operations.

Engulfing enemy drones, intercepting anti-ship missiles and penetrating the hull of an enemy ship are just a few of the capabilities of this revolutionary new technology.

US Navy: A Ready Force

The Navy has spent years testing and developing ship-fired lasers. Their first success was the law enforcement system aboard the USS Ponce. But now they’ve gone a step further with HELIOS, a state-of-the-art laser system that will equip their fleet of warships.

HELIOS: The new generation of lasers

The Helios, a high energy laser with optical glare and surveillance, offers a wide range of offensive and defensive applications in maritime warfare. Their ability to destroy, damage or disable targets such as drones or helicopters gives them unprecedented versatility.

An unmatched strategic advantage

The US Navy has gained a significant strategic advantage with ship-fired lasers. These systems allow for more effective offensive and defensive operations and can complement deck-mounted guns while providing unmatched accuracy and speed.

Laser Technology: The Evolution of Sea Warfare

Laser speed and accuracy are key elements in the future of ocean warfare. As new technologies transform naval warfare, lasers become an indispensable tool for distributed maritime operations.

The capability of a networked fleet supported by long-range weapons and sensors is critical in this new scenario.

Technology behind HELIOS

HELIOS has been carefully developed to overcome technical challenges. Thermal and environmental management, cooling and electrical power subsystems have been optimized to support laser operations. In addition, the Spectral Beam Combined Fiber Laser is a testament to the technological progress of the US Navy.

With a quiet, low-cost, highly accurate laser, the US Navy is preparing to redefine the future of naval warfare. A new era of warfare has arrived, and the Laser is the vanguard that will ensure American maritime supremacy.
