Title: WEAPONS SYSTEM HAVING AT LEAST TWO HEL EFFECTORS
Abstract:
In the case of a weapons system (100) with at least two HEL effectors (5.1, 5.2, 5.3), which have at least one beam guidance system (2.1, 2.2, 2.3), the present invention proposes the use of only one laser source (1) or one pump source (10) for the at least two HEL effectors (5.1, 5.2, 5.3). The beam guidance systems (2.1, 2.2, 2.3) of the HEL effectors (5.1, 5.2, 5.3) resort to the common laser source (1) or common pump source (10). An optical link of the common laser source (1) or of the common pump source (10) with the beam guidance system (2.1, 2.2, 2.3), be it direct or indirect, is implemented by means of at least one optical switching unit (4, 14), and so at least one functional, complete HEL effector (5.1, 5.2, 5.3) of the weapons system (100) is provided to defend against threats.
