U.S. Navy Tests New Generation Laser Weapon

Recently the US Navy tested a laser weapon in the Gulf of Aden.

The Gulf of Aden separates East Africa from the Arabian Peninsula.

By stably focusing a powerful beam of light onto an object, the laser can burn or destroy many objects, from small drones to flying missiles.

Such weapons, also known as directed energy weapons, travel at the speed of light with unprecedented accuracy.

The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has also developed a vehicle mounted high-power laser-guided power system for use against drones.
