The Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office will ask Kord Technologies to produce eight prototypes of the Directed Energy Maneuver Short Range Air Defense (DE M-SHORAD) system.

The prototypes must have a design that reduces overall weight and increases maintainability. It must also reportedly possess 50 kilowatts of power for effective destruction of enemy aircraft and missiles.
