Description: The Mk 38 Mod 2 Tactical Laser System is an advanced directed energy system demonstrator developed by BAE Systems and Boeing for the US Navy. It combines the 25mm machine gun from the Mk 38 gun system and a high energy laser weapon system to achieve enhanced surface ship defense. The solid-state high-energy laser weapon module is supplied by Boeing and is intended to hit surface and airborne threats such as small boats and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The tactical laser system also provides the ability to deliver different levels of laser energy, depending on the target and mission objectives. The US Navy contract for the Mk 38 Mod 2 Tactical Laser System was awarded in March 2011 to BAE Systems and the agreement between Boeing and BAE Systems was announced in July the same year.
