Laser Weapons System (LaWS)

  • Laser Weapons System (LaWS) are being developed and tested by USA
  • LaWS operates within an invisible part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
  • It strikes are extremely accurate, silent and invisible.
  • It is primarily intended to take on drones, aircraft, and small vessels that could be used in an attack.
  • The system has special materials that release photons at the speed of light.
  • It silently hits the target, burning it to a temperature of thousands of degrees.
  • It can even target a single component of an enemy target and disable or destroy it as necessary.
  • Each strike of the system travels 50,000 times the speed of an incoming ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile).
  • It is a very versatile weapon that can be used against a variety of targets in air or surface targets or ground-based targets.
  • Its precise nature can also limit collateral damage in wartime.
  • Its cost per use is approximately $1 per shot.
  • The system requires electrical power and a three-man team.
  • US is also developing second generation LaWS system which is believed to be intended to take on faster targets such as incoming missiles.
