'Tactically relevant': Lockheed's 300kW laser
Described as 'tactically relevant', Lockheed's 300kW laser represents the most powerful electrically driven laser yet developed for deployment in directed energy weapons. The power level will increase the stand-off distance over which such a weapon remains effective, and a demonstrator system featuring the technology is due to be tested by the US Army later this year.
