    NSWC Dahlgren Division Scientists Spotlight Directed Energy at DoD Lab Day

    ARLINGTON, Va. (May 18, 2017) - Matthew Ketner - a Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) engineer - briefs directed energy capabilities at the second DoD Lab Day held at the Pentagon. Innovations from 63 Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force laboratories and engineering centers were displayed during the collaborative event. Navy leaders have made directed-energy weapons a top priority to counter asymmetric threats, including unmanned and light aircraft and small attack boats that could be used to deny U.S. forces access to certain areas. High-energy lasers offer an affordable and safe way to target these threats at the speed of light with extreme precision and an unlimited magazine. NSWCDD, a Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) warfare center division, is a premier research and development center which serves as a specialty site for weapon system integration. The command's unique ability to rapidly introduce new technology into complex warfighting systems is based on its longstanding competencies in science and technology, research and development, and test and evaluation.
