BlueHalo awarded US Army contract for directed energy prototype development

The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command has awarded BlueHalo a USD95.4M contract for advanced directed energy prototype development as part of the Laser technology Research Development and Optimization (LARDO) programme through the Aviation & Missile Technology Consortium. 

The contract enables BlueHalo’s continued work to design and build laser weapon systems and deliver multiple prototypes. Building on its work with counter-uncrewed aerial systems technologies and lessons learned through the active deployment of its AI-enabled LOCUST laser systems, BlueHalo will conduct continuous system performance improvement, research and prototyping to advance the system and increase the lethality of engagements against small drones and similar threats.
