US Air Force acquires new anti-drone lasers
« on: October 25, 2019, 08:26:19 PM »
23 Oct 2019 .

Raytheon has delivered an experimental new anti-drone weapon to the Air Force .

The High Energy Laser Weapon Systems (HELWS) prototypes will be put through a year of testing and training by Air Force personnel overseas before finally being ready for live use on the battlefield .

The HELWS can be powered by either a standard 220-volt outlet or a generator .

Operators that aren’t great shots can take comfort in the fact that the energy efficient device can fire ‘a nearly infinite number of shots.’

The laser also comes with a sophisticated targeting system, with an infrared sensor to track and identify enemy drones, according to a report from Gizmodo .
