Skyshield Laser

Rheinmetall Defense’s Oerlikon Skyshield consists of one 10 kW fiber high-energy laser and a beam-forming unit. Commercial off-the-shelf fiber lasers were modified for an air defense role. The beam-forming unit provides diffraction-limited beam focusing, target imaging and fine tracking of the target. By utilizing this beam-superimposing technology, the company has managed to concentrate the power of single laser beams into one small spot, enabling not only superimposition of multiple laser beams on a single gun platform, but also superimposition of multiple gun platforms, for almost unlimited (e.g. 100 kW and more) power output.
