    Pentagon: We’re Closer Than Ever to Lasers That Can Stop Iranian, N Korean Missiles..

    With global demand for missile defense surging, US officials are fine-tuning cheaper, more powerful laser weapons.


    The Pentagon is looking to lasers as a cheaper, more effective way to shoot down long-range missiles fired at the United States by North Korea and Iran.

    After experimenting with the technology for more than a decade, U.S. military officials said “directed energy” is near the point where they could use it on the battlefield.


    It’s not a hope. This is what we’re doing,” Vice Adm. James Syring, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said Wednesday. “I view this [as] highly important for the future.”.....snip~

    Which will open up other countries using lasers on the battlefield too. Although, we should make it simple and not share any of this tech.....with anyone.
