    Air Force to deploy ground-based lasers in first field test of ‘directed energy’ weap

    Air Force to deploy ground-based lasers in first field test of ‘directed energy’ weapon

    Lasers are going operational fast. Just in time to counter hypersonic weapons.

    The Air Force announced Friday it will soon deploy two ground-based laser weapons to an undisclosed location to test how they can be used against small drones, the service’s first “operational field test” of an experimental “directed energy” weapon.

    On Friday afternoon, the Air Force announced a $23 million sole-source contract for two of Raytheon’s High Energy Laser Weapons Systems, through which the systems are to be tested for 12 months in an undisclosed “contested environment” outside the continental United States.


    “What we really want to do is figure out how we can deploy these systems in an environment where our warfighters work and train every day,” said Evan Hunt, director of high energy laser and counter-UAS at Raytheon. (UAS stands for unmanned aerial system.)

    I imagine all enemy intel agencies were we aware of this before the "media" wrote about it.

    Read the rest of the article at the link.
    Fast? I wrote a magazine article about directed energy weapons in 1979. Someone in the Pentagon determined that my article was top secret. Given that it was never published.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.
