Lockheed Martin Demos 50kW Anti-Aircraft Laser System


Recommended Posts

In light of continued threats from peers and near-peer threat nations, the US stays on the cutting edge of high-tech weaponry to counter. On the heels of the B-21 Raider reveal last year, the DoD has now confirmed the development of a new high-power laser in its application as an anti-aircraft weapon.

Lockheed Martin demos 50kW anti-aircraft frickin' laser beam


"Lockheed Martin this week showed that a 50kW laser being developed for air defense scenarios can be turned on to create a coherent beam, a milestone the defense giant calls "first light."…

"The 50kW-class Directed Energy Interceptor for Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense System, referred to as DEIMOS among those who'd rather not repeat that entire description every time the subject arises, is expected to be integrated, eventually, into a Stryker combat vehicle."

I wonder if this weapon, when deployed, will be able to counter hypersonic missiles?
