Apache AH-64
Raytheon and the US Army Apache Program Management Office, in collaboration with US Special Operations Command, say they recently completed a successful flight test of a high-energy laser system on board an Apache AH-64 helicopter at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The demonstration marks the first time that a fully integrated laser system successfully engaged and fired on a target from a rotary-wing aircraft over a wide variety of flight regimes, altitudes and air speeds.
