“Winning the IFPC-HEL prototype contract is the result of several years of complex program evolution, strategic investments and partnership with the Army on this program,” said Rick Cordaro, vice president of Lockheed Martin Mission Systems & Weapons. “Our mature directed energy technology enables Lockheed Martin to provide speed, agility, and 21st Century Security solutions to the Army.”
Lockheed Martin will deliver two 300 kW-class IFPC-HEL prototypes with an option for two additional 300 kW-class units.
Lockheed Martin’s 300 kW-class laser weapon system design and build was enabled by significant investments in directed energy technology and the contributions of a dedicated team. Lockheed Martin applies more than 40 years of experience in the research, design, development, and capture of electromagnetic energy to elevate its power for innovative 21st Century Security solutions.
