The Air Force Research Laboratory's Directed Energy Directorate develops high energy lasers, high power microwaves, and other directed energy technologies for the United States Air Force and the Department of Defense. The Directorate is also involved with advanced optics and imaging technologies to improve the nation's ability to precisely project these directed energies at the speed of light anywhere, at any time and with graduated intensity. A key organization on Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M.., the Directorate has more than 800 people (including in-house contractors) and operates with an annual budget of more than $300 million. The Directed Energy Directorate is one of 10 similarly sized subordinate units that comprise Air Force Research Laboratory, the Department of Defense's largest laboratory, headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. With approximately 6,000 military and civilian employees at nine bases throughout the United States, Air Force Research Laboratory is responsible for research and technology development in support of the Air Force's future and existing aerospace and space weapons systems.
