Global Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems (MILES) Market to Reach $1.2 Billion by 2026

Following the first ever demonstration over six decades ago in 1960, research into the use of laser technology as a weapon has grown markedly to enable lasers become as important in warfare as unmanned vehicles. Much of the advancements took place in the recent two decades when researchers overcame the SWaP (size, weight, and power) issues enabling the development of fiber and SSL (solid-state) lasers supported by powerful lithium-ion batteries. While high-energy lasers have become a reality, there is no reported practical deployment of a laser weapon system so far. However, this may change soon as defense systems consider adopting a cocktail of varied solutions for a unique defense system that can defend against multiple air and/or land attacks or even sea attacks, combating rockets, unmanned aircrafts, mortar rounds and artillery shells. The Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) training system provides a simulated yet realistic battle-like environment to soldiers for military exercises. By way of a simulation for tactical engagement, the system imparts force-on-force, direct fire training using laser bullets. Each vehicle and individual involved in the exercise is given a particular detection system that senses hits and also assesses casualties. Each participant and vehicular weapon system is fitted with laser transmitters that accurately replicate the lethality of specific weapons and their actual ranges. MILES has proven to increase the fighting effectiveness and combat readiness of defense personnel dramatically. MILES devices are used primarily for force-on-force exercises by squads and brigades to simulate firing and overall effects of real weapon systems like the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle, M1 Abrams Tank, wheeled vehicles, the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier, along with other assorted non-shooting targets. Moreover, basic MILES simulations also address machine guns, anti-armor weapons, rifles, and controller guns, within their programs.
