Raytheon's Ship-Mounted Laser Weapon Incinerates a UAV in Flight Videos for
Wars (SDI) derivative technology has paid off again. Per
Raytheon's press release,
"Raytheon Company and a U.S. Navy team used a combined-beam fiber laser to shoot down four unmanned aerial
vehicles in flight during an over-the-water engagement. The UAV targets were engaged and destroyed using the
Navy's Laser Weapon System guided by Raytheon's Phalanx Close-in Weapon System sensor suite. LaWS is made up of
six industrial-use lasers that simultaneously focus on the target. " Awesome, n'est-ce pas?
