Executive Summary
The directed energy weapons market has gradually become one of the most essential components which constitute a country’s primary military mission. These weapons generally emit the beam of highly focused electromagnetic energy which disable or destroy targets by transferring the beam to the target. Growing defense budget in the emerging countries and the favorable law prospects has raised the opportunity for DEW. The weapon system has a huge advantages in air, naval and ground-bases because of its ability to precisely attack the target. In military application, lethal DEWs helps in attacking vehicles, personnel, and facilities in the urban environment. In addition, it also being used to counter threats from rockets, artillery and mortar.
