A major challenge the HiPER  project is facing is to derive laser architectures satisfying simultaneously all HiPER requirements; among them, high wall-plug efficiency (15 to 20%) and repetition rate (around 10 Hz) are the most challenging constraints. Several groups over the world are actively pursuing research in the field of High average power Diode Pumped Solid State Lasers (DPSSL) . We propose a comprehensive solution for a 1 kJ DPSSL beamline as the unit brick of a 12 beams bundle.
