The U.S. Navy successfully installed the first Optical Dazzling Interdictor, Navy (ODIN), a laser weapon system that enables warships to counter unmanned aerial systems. The Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Dewey (DDG 105) was the first ship to get one of these systems. The development, testing and production of ODIN was done by Navy subject matter experts at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division in support of Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems.

Starting as an approved idea to installation took approximately 2.5-years, and ODIN’s install on Dewey will be the first operational employment of the stand-alone system that functions as a dazzler. This system will let the Navy rapidly deploy an important, new capability to the department’s surface force in combating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) threats.
