Tuesday, 07 November 2000 12:00 AM

Team SBL-IFX (Space-Based Laser Integrated Flight Experiment), a joint venture of Boeing, TRW and Lockheed Martin, received the funding from the Air Force Space & Missile Command at Los Angeles Air Force Base.

The award covers the so-called Increment 2 design work started in May 1999 and aimed at developing a satellite capable of carrying a laser weapon into space by the 2012 target date.

"Team SBL-IFX is continuing to make solid progress identifying and refining the requirements, design and manufacturing technologies needed to meet the size, weight, cost and performance requirements of the SBL-IFX program," Barry Waldman, director of Team SBL-IFX, said in a release.

Increment 2 also includes further refinement of the laser itself as well as its control systems.
