Defense Primer: Directed-Energy Weapons [July 20, 2021]   [open pdf - 507KB]

From the Document: "Both the 2018 'National Defense Strategy' and the House Armed Services Committee's bipartisan 'Future of Defense Task Force Report' have identified directed energy as a technology that could have a significant impact on U.S. national security in the years to come. As the Department of Defense (DOD) continues to invest in directed-energy (DE) weapons, Congress may consider implications for defense authorizations, appropriations, and oversight."
