Noise-Generation Solutions Support The True Power Of Directed Energy Weapons

By Matt Diessner, Noisecom

Defense weaponry is a mainstay on the technological frontlines, continually expanding design and performance capabilities to uphold global safety and security from adversaries with hostile intentions. Directed-energy weapons (DEWs) have garnered significant interest from various military branches and research institutions due to a myriad of operational advantages over traditional defense systems.

Laser-based DEWs are powerful ranged weapons that produce a concentrated beam of energy to neutralize targets of interest. Traveling at the speed of light, these highly focused laser beams support a near-infinite range, reduce risk of collateral damage, and provide an endless ammunition supply if drawing from a sufficient power source. Whether launching from air-, land-, or sea-based structures, their platform flexibility expands potential mission locations, no matter the domain. 

Although DEWs show promise in tactical campaigns, design and performance issues related to their high-power nature halt the developmental progress at the experimental stage, limiting the possibility of practical, deployment-ready DEWs. This article explores a restricting challenge affecting laser-weapon design, as well as noise-generation solutions that allow DEWs to truly reach their full potential.
