Submission + - Boeing gets contract for truck-mounted lasers guns-> 1 1

bl8n8r writes: "Boeing has announced a contract with the United State's Army to develop laser cannons which are to be mounted atop trucks for the purpose shooting down incoming artillery, rockets, mortars or bombs. The High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator (HELTD) project actually shoots stuff instead of just painting a mark on a target for other guidance systems. The intent is for shooting enemy projectiles out of the sky before they can reach their target, but I presume it could have other uses too."
