Boeing has completed system integration of key components for the US Army high-energy laser technology demonstrator (HEL TD).

The integration included installation of the beam control system and critical hardware onto the Oshkosh heavy expanded mobility tactical truck, HEL TD’s vehicle platform.

HEL TD system integration will undergo low-power system testing scheduled for the final quarter of 2011 at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, US, to demonstrate its ability to acquire, track and target moving projectiles.

The system is equipped with mirrors, high-speed processors and high-speed optical sensors.

The system will receive the laser beam from the HEL TD laser device, reshape and align the beam, and then focus it on the target that include rockets, artillery, mortars and UAVs.

The HEL TD system is managed by the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Forces Strategic Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, US.
