The U.S. Navy has deployed on a command ship in the Persian Gulf its first laser weapon capable of destroying a target.
The amphibious transport ship USS Ponce has been patrolling with a prototype 30-kilowatt-class Laser Weapon System since late August, according to officials. The laser is mounted facing the bow, and can be fired in several modes — from a dazzling warning flash to a destructive beam — and can set a drone or small boat on fire.
Zekiah provided software engineering and testing for this system.
Zekiah’s work on the Laser Weapons System was featured on c|net on April 7, 2014 —
Scared of drones? Then you should see the new weapon the US Navy hopes to use to knock them out of the sky. I’m talking about frickin’ lasers here, folks.
After years of testing, the Navy says it’s making final adjustments on a new prototype of a Laser Weapons System — dubbed LaWS — that will be deployed into the real world in late summer.
