As a forum for these considerations, the fifth annual Beam Control Conference was held on 12-16 April 2010 to investigate issues surrounding the employment of DE weapons. The conference was part of the Directed Energy Systems Symposium.

The 2010 DE Beam Control Conference maintained its focus as the premier DoD conference in laser beam power projection. This year's conference was expanded to include sessions dedicated to space situational awareness, free-space laser communication, and advanced adaptive optics.
