Abstract

The integration of directed energy weapons (DEWs) into modern military platforms is of considerable interest to those examining the impact of emerging technology on the future fighting force. Hence the performance prediction of DEWs is of importance. The purpose of this study is to develop a simple framework where the minimum number of DEWs deployed in an operational setting can be determined, to achieve a desired level of performance.
