Electronics For You;May2014, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p78
The article focuses on the important uses of solid-state laser electronics in defense lasers and optronic systems. A discussion of the components of the solid-state laser electronics and their function of determining the range of adversary's positions by troops is given. An explanation of how solid-state laser electronics can be integrated in pulse-forming network and how to overcome its drawbacks is given.
