Abstract : The ADDS Chemical Laser system provides an output beam of 420 kW with a telescope aperture of 1 meter. With a wavelength of 3.8 microns (based on DF lasing), the ADDS is capable of providing effective power-on-target at near-maximum range for each of the defined missions. System mission effectiveness is described in detail.
