Journal of Directed Energy
Dr. Samuel M. Blankenship, Editor
The Journal of Directed Energy is a peer-reviewed publication of the Directed Energy
Professional Society (DEPS). It addresses the many aspects of fully engineered directed energy (DE)
systems and advances DEPS vision of becoming the premier institution for the exchange of DE information.
The Journal is made possible by grants from the High Energy Laser Joint Technology Office and by
funding from DEPS.
The Journal of Directed Energy provides a central source for the dissemination and exchange of
timely information on the various aspects of DE. It provides a forum for the collegial interaction
necessary for the testing of ideas and for identifying new opportunities and directions for the
advancement of the field. Although other forums exist for publishing archival papers in the various
fields associated with DE, The Journal is distinguished by its focus on the emerging DE
engineering and system issues, and by its willingness to publish classified papers.
The Journal of Directed Energy offers:
Classified and unclassified editions
Individual and institutional subscriptions
Rigorous peer-review process
High standards of quality and service
Submissions to the Journal
The Journal of Directed Energy solicits and publishes both classified and unclassified papers
in all aspects of DE, with particular emphasis on the engineering issues of the discipline, including:
DE System Design
High Energy Lasers
High Power Microwave Systems
Acquisition, Tracking, and Pointing
DE Modeling and Simulation
Self Protection Issues
Test and Evaluation
The Journal of Directed Energy published only unclassified, public release papers. The Journal of
Directed Energy (Limited Edition) publishes only classified papers. Instructions
for manuscript submission are available here.
Subscriptions to Unclassified Journal
Subscriptions to the unclassified Journal of Directed Energy,
as well as past issues of the Journal, are available for purchase from the DEPS online store. Each
subscription includes two issues. Currently, DEPS is able to distribute the unlcassified Journal of Directed
Energy to DEPS members as a benefit of membership.
In addition, DEPS offers online access to papers pending publication in the Journal. Abstracts from these
are available to the public while the entire papers are available to our subscribers, including
DEPS members. This page will segue into online publication, which will parallel hardcopy
publication of the Journal.
Obtaining Papers from the Classified Journal
DEPS also publishes the classified Journal of Directed Energy (Limited Edition).
Individual papers from
the classified Journal are available, free of charge, to persons with the proper security credentials
through the Directed Energy Engineering and Analysis Center (DE2AC).
