Drone killing laser cannon became reality


On the demo made with a stationary, composite UAV shell, after two seconds of laser fool power (which is a two-kilowatt infrared laser) the target was aflame. The compact system is small enough to fit in four suitcase-sized boxes and can be set up by a pair of soldiers or technicians in just a few minutes. Depending on the target’s speed and distance, Boeing’s weapon can fire its laser within an inch or two of what it wants to hit. The laser is controlled with a standard Xbox 360 controller and a laptop and even can work automatically. It could run for years with only the basic maintenance. In the future the new weapon could be used on a moving vehicle or ship. The company will add some sound effects to help the operators.The price of the system was not yet specified. The new weapon will be ready for the market in one year or two.
