The U.S. Army awarded The Boeing Co. a contract valued at approximately $36 million to continue developing a truck-mounted, high-energy laser weapon system that will destroy rockets, artillery shells, and mortar rounds. Under the High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator (HEL TD) Phase II contract, Boeing will complete its design and then build, test, and evaluate a rugged beam-control system on a Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck. Boeing also will develop the system engineering requirements for the entire HEL TD laser weapon system. Boeing successfully completed the preliminary design of the beam-control system earlier this summer.
