We present performance of PROGRESS Nd:glass laser facility which consists of a six beam phosphate Nd:glass laser, 30 TW PROGRESS-P picosecond YLF:Nd glass laser, which uses chirped pulse amplification technique and target chamber. PROGRESS-M laser is capable to focus simultaneously at 1,054 micrometers the energy of 1.5 kJ PROGRESS-1M laser. This laser with output rod amplifier 14 cm is the prolongation of one of the beam of the multi-beam laser. PROGRESS-P CPA laser uses YLF:Nd oscillator, single mode optical fiber, Nd:glass rod amplifiers with output diameter of 85 mm. At the output, the chirped pulse with energy about 45 J is compressed up to 1.4 ps in the single-pass compressor on two holographic gratings, which produces power of 22 TW.
