U.S. Army Selects Team Dynetics

The U.S. Army awarded Team Dynetics, comprising Lockheed Martin and its partners, a $10 million contract to continue development for the next phase of the High Energy Laser Tactical Vehicle Demonstrator (HEL TVD) programme, a 100-kilowatt class laser weapon system.
Laser weapons are ideally suited to address high volume, low cost threats because of their inexpensive cost per shot and deep magazine.

Team Dynetics HEL TVD system incorporates highly reliable subsystems to withstand the expected rugged operation conditions.

The team recently completed a system requirements review and technical baseline update. The next step in the programme will be the preliminary design review in January 2019. Dynetics is drawing on the experience of systems engineering, manufacturing, test and vehicle modifications for integration on the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV).

Lockheed Martin provides the laser subsystem, as well as other key subsystems.

The spectral beam combined fibre laser subsystem strongly leverages Lockheed Martin’s experience from ground vehicle integration gained as part of the Army’s Robust Electric Laser Initiative (RELI) programme.

Team Dynetics is one of the two remaining contractors competing to build the demonstrator that will be tested in 2022.
The winning contractor will be awarded a contract option to finish the design, build and integrate the laser weapon system onto an Army FMTV platform and conduct field-testing at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
