Laser research projects to increase fuel efficiency of ships and aircraft

A number of ongoing European research projects are using laser technology to structure and clean the surfaces of ships and aircraft in order to improve their fuel efficiency

A new laser peening system will be installed on-board a Littoral Combat Ship, a lightweight vessel designed for ocean-going and near-shore operations. (MCC Keith DeVinney/U.S. Navy)

Laser peening to treat aluminium plates on naval combat ships

The system will be based on LSP’s Laser Procudo Peening system, which will be installed with a custom-designed beam deck delivery system on-board a Littoral Combat Ship

The manufacturing line will be used to accelerate the conversion of maritime transport towards using electric propulsion. (Image: Leclanché)
