Power and thermal management
Even with the recent advances in laser diode and fiber laser efficiencies, the 100kW weapon will dissipate a colossal amount of heat. This new power and thermal management system from Libertyworks is said to be capable of handling the 300kW instant-on electrical power needed by the laser, plus the 200kW thermal load, inside a footprint that can fit on the back of a truck.
