Lockheed Martin makes laser that can stop vehicles from over a mile away

That is cool: Lockheed Martin introduced that it’s developed a laser referred to as ATHENA that can disable the engine of a small truck from over a mile away.

ATHENA, or Superior Check Excessive Power Asset, is a “30-kilowatt, single-mode fiber laser weapon system prototype.” The aim? To develop a weapon system that can stop vehicles with larger precision, subsequently inflicting much less destruction and lack of life. The 30-kilowatt laser utilized in ATHENA was developed in Bothell.

“Fiber-optic lasers are revolutionizing directed vitality methods,” mentioned Keoki Jackson, Lockheed Martin CTO in a statement. “We’re investing in each part of the system – from the optics and beam management to the laser itself – to drive measurement, weight and energy efficiencies. This check represents the subsequent step to offering light-weight and rugged laser weapon methods for army plane, helicopters, ships and vans.”

We’re all for weapons that aren’t of the mass-destruction sort. That is a fairly neat begin.
