In my fourth installment of interviews from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, I explored two futuristic systems. Neither is ready for mounting on the deck of a Navy ship. But both work in laboratory test beds. We’ll hear from Adam Jones, head of advanced hypersonics and guided munitions. But first we’ll hear from Ben Tritt, the chief of Dahlgren’s high energy laser weapons systems. I’d just seen a demonstration of a laser cut a inch-wide hole in a thick piece of steel. Next I spoke with Adam Jones, head of advanced hypersonics and guided munitions.
