Working for the U.S. Navy for 35 years on weapons (air, surface, subsurface, directed, kinetic, conventional and non-conventional, and improvised), I joined ONR 20 years ago to focus research in improved performance, including high-energy lasers (HELs) and high-power microwaves (HPMs). I direct/fund basic research, applied sciences, and advanced prototype programs, including the deployment of the Laser Weapon System (LaWS) on the USS PONCE [AFSB(i)-15], the Solid State Laser-Technology Maturation (SSL-TM) Program, and the Ground-Based Aviation Defense (GBAD) HEL weapon. These programs involve laboratory theoretical investigations, component development, systems integration, field testing, virtual modeling, and user field testing.
