MZA was awarded a multi-year contract to continue the development of the AFRL HELLADS Demonstrator Laser Weapons System (DLWS). For this effort, MZA will support directed energy systems engineering, embedded software development, test support, and end-to-end modeling activities.

The Statement of Work (SOW) for this effort requires MZA to complete development of the Beam Transfer Subsystem (which is one of the subsystems of the DLWS system), complete hardware and software assemblies, which they have been responsible for on the DLWS safety systems, continue the system performance modeling effort that supports design decisions, test planning support, and continue the software engineering management. The SOW also requires MZA to verify that the Beam Transfer Subsystem meets all subsystem requirements, and to provide test support for the Beam Transfer Subsystem during DLWS system testing.

The on-going DLWS effort extends MZA's legacy of technical excellence and value in the support of the United States' most important and ambitious directed energy weapons programs.
