Directed Energy Research Center

Welcome to the Directed Energy Research Center at the United States Naval Academy. The mission of our laboratory is to educate midshipmen in the physics and application of directed energy technologies, particularly high energy lasers, and to conduct joint midshipmen-faculty research on topics of interest. Please explore our website to learn more about what we do, and please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more or get involved.

Cody Brownell
Director, DERC


The midshipmen and faculty involved in directed energy scholarship at the Naval Academy would like to gratefully acknowledge those individuals and organizations who have supported our work, in particular the Office of Naval Research, the High Energy Laser - Joint Technology Office, and the USNA Trident Scholar Program.
