The Division of Undersea Warfare (OPNAV N97) wants to investigate the feasibility of installing a HEL system on Virginia Class Submarine (VCS) BLK V platforms and beyond. One of the primary challenges of VCS HEL implementation is working within the confines of the VCS physical architecture. Other challenges common to all maritime platforms are mitigating the effect of the ambient environment including sea state, atmospheric optical turbulence and atmospheric transmission. In addition, the system will require innovative design and implementation to operate effectively with other combat systems while also being properly integrated with other submarine systems. A key requirement will be the ability for the system to engage threats from the surface.
