Powerful and highly accurate laser weapons successfully tested in the UK

Published

on

Dragonfire, a British Laser Directed Energy Program (LDEW) run by missile systems manufacturer MBDA, has successfully launched a series of tests on the accuracy and power of new laser weapons. This is a joint project of the UK Ministry of Industry and Defense, MBDA, Leonardo, QinetiQ and Dstl.

The first of these low power tests proved that the system could successfully track air and sea targets with exceptionally high accuracy. This success paved the way for the next phase of testing, which will be the first for the British industry to test a high power static laser while maintaining aiming accuracy. The next step will be to combine the results of these two tests, combining newly proven tracking accuracy with a powerful laser, by hitting targets in practical scenarios.

The success of these tests is a key step in the development of sovereign directional laser weapons. This is the culmination of a lot of hard work from both the industry and DSTL teams to overcome the disruptions due to COVID and the technical challenges involved in using Dragonfire’s unique innovations that test the very limits of what is physically possible in the realm of laser weapons.

The main task of the LDEW system is to safely control and focus high laser power to an extremely precise point at a great distance. The tracking test was a great test of how the components of the Dragonfire tracking system worked together. This test used a low power QinetiQ laser, a Leonardo beam aimer, and MBDA image processing and management technology to provide the pointing and tracking accuracy that would be required to inflict damage when a high power laser was used.

Other subsystems, including the C2, the Effector Management System (EMS) and “coarse” tracking – directing the laser at the target – were also tested during the tests.

Huawei Mate 50 will allow you to call and send

Interesting information has emerged about the flagship Huawei Mate 50 series of smartphones, which could be released as early as September this year.

The new version of the Harmony 3.0 operating system, which will run smartphones of the Huawei Mate 50 series, will have an emergency mode that turns on after the battery is low. In this mode, users will retain the ability to receive and send text messages. In addition, you will still be able to make an emergency call.

That is, even after the smartphone informs you that the battery is completely discharged, you will remain in touch for some time. Most likely, you should not expect any amazing technologies from this function. It’s just that the operating system will keep counting the battery charge level, saving some percentage for emergency mode. And when Harmony 3.0 reports that the battery is empty at 0, in fact, it will retain a certain percentage of the charge.

According to previous news, the Huawei Mate 50 series will consist of four models, including Mate 50e, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro, and Mate 50 RS.

Today we published photos of covers or back panels of the Mate 50 RS.
