Navy plans to fire laser weapons off of ships within a year
The US Navy is moving at warp speed to develop lasers with more lethality, precision and power sources as a way to destroy attacking missiles, drones, aircraft, and other threats.

"We're doing a lot more with lasers," Rear Adm. Ronald Boxall, director of the Surface Warfare Division, said earlier this month at the annual Surface Naval Association national symposium.

The Navy plans to fire a 150-kilowatt weapon off a test ship within a year, he said. "Then a year later, we'll have that on a carrier or a destroyer or both." ...

Well, for articles that I think are of interest to everyone (Yeah, I know really interesting to me. ) I usually put up a tinyURL link also, so if you're using the SA app, you can easily go to them with a more standard browser on your mobile device.

The last couple iterations of the PC FireFox have been a little quirky, especially here.

To make life easier for mobile device users I usually do this [URL=https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2014/dec/10/us-navy-laser-weapon-video]]]http://tinyurl.com/h9gx75h ( US navy demonstrates ship-based laser weapon – video)[/URL] Ir might be titled making the Iranian Navy feel warm all over.

Hey Jim, I use the app pretty much exclusively, so I don't even see links. Anyway, can't answer that. I was using it a while ago for other things though, and no issues.

Yes, as SteveR pointed out, if you're going to get any distance you're going to have be able to curve that laser beam

So, far the power supplies for a laser that can do any damage has to be huge. Yes, I think other weapons will have to be on the a ship, that wants to do any serious firings.

Christopher000, are you having problems with your desktop browser? My Firefox one can't put in URL links for one thing.

HEL MD has now been field tested in multiple weather conditions. Fully capable of shooting down objects through multiple weather conditions. Fog, rain, clouds do not detract from this lasers heating capability.

Currently, it is unknown if snowy / icing conditions have been tested yet.

The laser now deployed is 10kw (kilowatts), up coming models will be in the 50-60kw range.

Old tech.

Old News???

Quote: From 11:April:2011.
"The US Navy has fired a laser gun from one of its ships for the first time.
Researchers used the high-energy laser (HEL) to disable a boat by setting fire to its engines off the coast of California.
Similar systems had previously been tested on land, but moist sea air presented an extra challenge as it reduces a beam's power.
The navy said that ship-borne lasers could eventually be used to protect vessels from small attack boats.
The US military has been experimenting with laser weapons since the 1970s."

More sensible to fire a laser off of ships than to fire the laser weapon off of the ship.

Is everything written by morons?

This reminded me, in a way, of the crowd dispersing sound cannons they have and use, from fairly portable ones, to those mounted on a vehicle which cause pain and nausea, and I believe they're silent. Technology sure has come a long way in such a short amount of time.
What I always consider is how we got to where we are and what we have from: sticks, stones, soil, gems, natural gases, precious metals, wood, and water, etc.
These are what we had to work with to invent and build what we have today.
