Abstract : At the end of 1990, SDIO canceled comprehensive tests of large model land based free electron laser technologies and turned to the carrying out of average power laser experiments (APLE). The final APLE apparatus realizes electron beam powers of 2 megawatts. Laser average output powers are 100 kilowatts. Wave lengths are approximately 10 microns. APLE projects are jointly funded by the U.S. Army and SDIO. They are cooperatively carried out by the Boeing company and Los Alamos laboratory.
