Three win laser contracts

TRW Corp., Raytheon Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. each have won contracts in laser research and development.

The TRW and Raytheon contracts, worth $21.3 million and $16.9 million over two years, respectively, were awarded by the Air Force Research Laboratory. TRW and Raytheon will be working to develop an electrically powered, solid-state laser that puts out 25 kilowatts of laser-beam power.

Northrop Grumman was awarded a contract worth up to $45 million over five years by the Air Force Materiel Command to study the physiological effects on personnel who are exposed to laser radiation and how lasers affect visual performance. At press time, Northrop Grumman was preparing to complete its acquisition of TRW.
