India:DRDO To Build Most Advanced Laser Weapon as Used in Star Wars Movie
The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is reportedly taking steps towards developing a new most advanced Laser weapon similar as used by Warriors in Star Wars Movie.
DRDO is in the process to develop Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) such as high-energy lasers and high-powered microwaves and catching up with the US, Russia and China in the field (reported The Times of India).
DRDO’s new built 10-Kilowatt DEW is the most advanced weapons which is used against Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) like targets .
It can track and destroy the Unwanted UAVs and other similar targets by using the combination of laser beam and precision tracking technology.
The system has reportedly been tested up to a range of 800 metres at its Hyderabad-based Centre for High Energy Systems and Sciences (CHESS).
However, the actual operational deployment of such directed energy weapons will still take some time.
