Press Release, Redondo Beach CA, 24 August 2023: Northrop Grumman Corporation has delivered a miniaturised high-energy laser source to the US government. The laser is ruggedised for field use and miniaturising it allows for rapid placement in tactical situations.

  • The 10kW class high-energy laser, known as Phantom, is about 12 cubic feet (nearly the size of a mini fridge).
  • Weighing less than 200 pounds, it enables lift, carry and installation by as few as two personnel.
  • The Phantom customer will integrate it with other subsystems for testing and delivery to military customers.

Robert Fleming, vice president and general manager, strategic space systems, Northrop Grumman: “By miniaturising this advanced capability, we are expanding the reach of our technology and continuing to lead the way in high-energy lasers. Northrop Grumman is using its expertise in directed energy to deliver an extremely compact, lightweight and efficient laser for the warfighter.”
