      One of the more interesting weapons is the nuclear pumped laser. While this sort of weapon cannot be added to the game it would be an option for future space combat, so I though I would start a discussion on it. An aerosol core nuclear reactor for space-based high energy/power nuclear-pumped lasers: Authors: FL, Orbit Book Co., Inc., , p. Research sponsored by Nuclear-Pumped Laser Corp. Publication Date: 00/ Category: Energy Production and Conversion: Origin: STI: NASA/STI Keywords: High Power Lasers, Nuclear Pumped Lasers.

    Nuclear pumped lasers are only a few months old. On 2 October , NASA announced a * nuclear pumped helium-xenon laser (ref. 1) and the Sandia Corporation announced a nuclear pumped carbon monoxide laser on 11 October (ref. 2). The efficiency in both of these. This banner text can have markup.. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

    He has worked in the field of nuclear pumped lasers since his days as a graduate student. Mr. Matthew L. Watermann NSEI - University of Missouri Denis Alexander Wisniewski. Dr. Janese Annetta Neher Nuclear Science and Engineering Institute-University of Missouri Columbia Janese A. Neher is a Professional Engineer licensed in the State of. Richard T. Schneider, Herbert H. Helmick, in Space and Energy, ABSTRACT. Gaseous core reactors and nuclear pumped lasers have the potentials of space propulsion at exhaust jet velocities up to 50, m/sec, space power at 1 kg/kW specific mass, power transmission via laser beams over astronomical distances and beneficial applications on Earth.

An increased focus is on the Author: Mendykhan U. Khasenov. Nuclear pumped lasers could therefore direct significant amounts of energy emitted in a nuclear explosion into a very narrowly collimated beam.

This beam would not only be able to destroy or damage targets from very long ranges, but also preclude subsequent use due to its own self-damaging mechanism to the initial weapon. [1].
