In the Phase I period of this program Forward Photonics (FP) has made significant progress in improving the packaging design of commercial and custom laser diode bars such that the efficiency of future direct diode directed-energy weapons (DEWs) can be enhanced. In the Phase II period of the program, FP will implement these design changes in a high brightness direct diode laser module with output power > 8.75 kW (scalable to > 50 kW), amongst other efficiency improving strategies.
