Anti-Air Laser System

Anti-aircraft laser unveiled at Farnborough Airshow.

Raytheon has created a 50kW IR laser system that is capable of destroying UAVs, mortars, rockets and small surface ships. They've even mounted the system onto a Phalanx (CIWS) missile defense system.

This is just awesome.

At one of my former jobs, we created some wiring harnesses for a number of Raytheon products. Makes me wonder if they're doing the harnessing for this bad boy.
