AERTEC is working to further develop laser technologies, which are a core component of DIRCM and DEW subsystems, and to demonstrate the extent to which they contribute to the performance of electronic countermeasure (ECM) systems.

Design and development of a microdiode laser emitter at 2.1 microns to be used as part of a DIRCM system for UAVs. Two prototypes were developed, tested and demonstrated up to TRL6, one based on Optically Pumped Vertical Diode (OPVD) and the other based on Diode Bar Emitter (DBE).
