Test demonstrates THEL subsystem handoff
TRW and the U.S. Army have demonstrated the "handoff" process between two subsystems of the Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL) system, being developed to destroy short-range missiles.
In an Oct. 12 test at White Sands Missile Range, TRW said yesterday, the command, control, communications and intelligence (C3I) subsystem passed information on flying Katyusha rockets to the pointer tracker subsystem (PTS), marking the first time for such a handoff with live targets.
