Laser misuse poses a unique challenge to the public health and medical communities. The rapid pace of laser technology development warrants exploratory research into mitigation strategies for emerging laser threats. This report compiles the findings from a multidiscipinary research program to address public health and force health protection capability gaps that emerged as unanticipated laser exposure incidents increased. Research efforts were directed to improve capabilities in three key areas 1 LEP performance, 2 laser characterization in the field, and 3 laser eye injury diagnosis. Complimentary projects explored other sensing modalities that could be combined with laser characterization.
