Co-Sponsored by the
The Directed Energy (DE) Systems Symposium focuses on systems aspects of DE in a limited-attendance environment. The Fifth DE Systems Symposium consisted of co-located technical sessions organized by six separate conferences, with joint technical and plenary sessions to encourage discussion outside narrow technical limits. The objective of this year’s symposium was to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and to focus on near term demonstrations of DE technology. Previous Symposia were also held in Monterey.
The technical program is available here in PDF format (520Kb) for download. Changes to the program did occur.
Luncheon Speaker Professor P.V. Zarubin
Professor P.V. Zarubin spoke on the work of thousands of Soviet scientists, engineers, servicemen, and administrators who took part in numerous general and military Soviet high energy laser research and development programs between 1963 and 1980. Professor Zarubin participated in these programs, leading some of them.
