TALOS – Tactical Advanced Laser Optical System

Aerospace & defence systems >>> Defence systems

Client: European Defence Agency (2019-ongoing)

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.

It will develop and demonstrate some of the most critical Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW) technologies paving the way to the design and build of an EU high-power laser effector to be integrated in military applications by 2025. Within the consortium, Aertec is performing target vulnerability classification studies based on simulations.
