This weapon can destroy drones, small ships and even cruise missiles.

A weapon as well suited to easily destroy a spy drone or a cruise missile. The American defense giant Lockheed Martin said in an press release has a technology capable of performing such prowess. The company designed a 300 -kilowatts laser and gave it to the Pentagon as part of a program called "High Energy Laser Scaling Initiative" or "High -energy lasers enhancement in French. The US military intends to test this device in the coming months before possibly joining it as an attack system on armored vehicles or ships.

This smaller volume will also facilitate the work of engineers who will have to deal with the maintenance of such weapons on the front.

have the Lockheed Martin laser will have to be versatile and support the marine environment or the desert dust. “With this device, American soldiers will be able to defend themselves against threats such as rockets, artillery shells, mortars, cruise missiles, drones and even Small ships, ”said Rick Cordaro. The fundamental principle of modern energy weapons - as soldiers prefer to call high power lasers - is that they can destroy in an inexpensive way a variety of enemy projectiles. A US Navy boat equipped with this type of laser could use the latter several times to bring down a recognition drone as well as a cruise missile instead of boarding a whole range of defense systems that require 'be refitled after each use.

If the new Technology of Lockheed Martin has not yet destroyed a flying object during its first tests, another laser designed by the Defense giant has already proven itself. This is the Helios system which with its 60 -kilowatts power has effectively destroyed flying drones. Rick Cordaro therefore estimated that the new weapon developed by Lockheed Martin could destroy enemy projectiles five times faster than his predecessor.
