+ - Boeing Solid-State Laser Weapon System Outshines Expectations->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "The likelihood of lasers appearing on the battlefield was boosted last week when Boeing announced that its Thin Disk Laser system had achieved unexpected levels of power and efficiency. In a recent demonstration for the US Department of Defense, the laser’s output was 30 percent higher than project requirements and had greater beam quality, a result which paves the way toward a practical tactical laser weapon."
