Rheinmetall, MBDA To Develop High-energy Laser Effector For German Navy's Corvette K130
K130 Braunschweig-class corvette

Rheinmetall and MBDA Deutschland have agreed to collaborate to construct, integrate and test a laser demonstrator for the German Navy’s corvette K130.

The laser demonstrator will be capable of engaging targets at the speed of light with precision and minimal collateral damage.

Now, for the first time ever, this capability is to be investigated under quasi-operational conditions using a demonstrator installed onboard a German corvette.

The details and division of responsibilities between the two companies will be determined as soon as the performance specification is made available by the Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-service Support, Germany’s military procurement agency.
