We report spatiotemporal topological solitons in an array of modelocked lasers. In its conservative limit, our model reduces to the famous Su–Schrieffer–Heeger system possessing topological states inside the gap of its linear spectrum. We report one-dimensional spatial and two-dimensional spatiotemporal topological solitons, i.e., bullets, with the operational frequencies locked to the values inside the topological gap.
