Test aircraft carries HARDROC beam director illuminated by a low-power laser.
A test aircraft carries the sub-scale HARDROC beam director illuminated by a low-power scoring laser during an experimentation flight in 2022. The HARDROC program evaluated in flight the ability of various aerodynamic flow control techniques to mitigate optical and mechanical distortions imparted on a laser beam leaving an airborne platform travelling at high speeds.
