The United States will test a combat laser by the end of the year.  It will be used against aircraft, drones and missiles.

It is noted that the work on creating a prototype cost the Pentagon $ 72 million. The lasers themselves will have “several defense applications”, such as being able to track and focus energy on a moving target, allowing them to be used in missile defense systems.

Earlier it was reported that the US military was able to shoot down an artillery mine with a laser. The operation took place as part of the testing of the 50-kilowatt Raytheon combat laser module. The beam destroyed several 60mm mines.

Tests took place in May at White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico as part of the Directed Energy Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense (DE M-SHORAD) program, which is developing directed energy weapons. This weapon should become part of a promising short-range American air defense system. It is noted that the laser system is designed to protect ground troops from drones and aircraft.
