To date, the United States Air Force is the largest end-user of laser shock processing services. Laser shock processing (LSP) is in successful day-to-day service and production for several USAF engine lines for increased foreign object damage tolerance. In this application LSP has yielded substantial increases in foreign object damage tolerance along with associated increases in safety. The history and current application of laser shock processing for US Air Force applications will be reviewed. Current and future USAF applications of laser shock processing and other surface treatments will be reviewed.
