Scary but cool at the same time. Yes we are workihg on this technology as well.
Ours is even more advanced.
How long before this extends to space and “Death Rays?”
Well to be honest the hard parts are done. It would be just a matter of scale and application.
China has developed an anti-drone laser technology that can apparently shoot down a low flying drone within a two kilometer radius.
The official Xinhua news agency reports that the technology has been co-developed by the China Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP), with the claim being that small-scale drones can be shot down within five seconds of the system locking on.
It said the reason for using laser as an anti-drone tech is to increase the accuracy with which drones can be blasted out of the sky — vs other less precision methods such as using a sniper or intercepting by helicopter. A test of the technology with more than 30 drones apparently resulted in a 100 per cent success rate.
The system will be installed or transported in vehicles, and used to bolster security during “major events in urban areas”, according to a CAEP statement.
There’s no quantification of how small-scale the drones have to be to be terminated by laser, but…
