Life can be suck but it must go on...
Brewing my own laser calculator :3 www.mediafire.com/view/r25cdq2…
So basically the calculator will calculate and roughly determine whether the laser can destroy the target or not. Based on the user input the calculator will determine the beamspot area, absorbed power within the beam diameter at the target, determine beam fluence per seconds of engagement and beam fluence received by target at xxx engagement time specified by user.
Oh anyway this calculator will unfortunately Not consider beam broadening caused by "Tropospheric soup" Thus be careful when sizing Naval laser with this calculator.
Parameters considered are :
-Mirror diameter (The one which focus the beam)
-Emitted power (Pulsed or CW doesn't matter)
-Dwell time (How long the laser need to dwell to the target)
-Absorbance of the material toward laser beam (This need a chart..I'll provide it below)
-Target hardness :
[*]Aircraft : 25 Kj/sqcm
[*]Ballistic Missile (Solid fueled): 24 Kj/Sqcm
[*]Ballistic Missile (Liquid Fueled): 3 Kj/Sqcm
[*]Ballistic Missile (Liquid Fueled)With some hardening and rotation : 10 Kj/Sqcm
[*]Re-Entry Vehicle of Ballistic Missile : 100 Kj/Sqcm
