Abstract
This work describes the possibility of ABL(Airborne Laser) applications to the Korean missile defense. The missile defense system is the multilayered defense system that consists of shooters, sensors and BM/C4I. The ABL is the missile defense system of boost phase. It is placing a high energy, megawatt class chemical oxygen iodine laser and highly sophisticated beam control/fire control and battle management systems on a modified Boeing 747-400F aircraft to detect, track and destroy ballistic missiles in their boost phase of flight. This work analysis the ballistic missile's threat of North Korea and the flight trajectory for the SCUD missile that is cut-off by the ABL. From this analysis the possibility of the ABL applications to the Korean missile defense is presented.
Key Words: Airborne Laser, Weapons of Mass Dstruction, Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser
