Laser Defense Offense


Similar to the U.S.’s new laser defense being deployed aboard the USS Ponce in the Gulf, there is a promising new missile defense technology–“Iron Beam”–using lasers from Rafael in Israel. 



This augments Israel’s “Iron Dome” anti-missile defense system using intercept missiles. 



Iron Beam functions with air defense radars and thermal camera tracking that identifies incoming targets and uses 2 lasers with 100’s of kilowatts of directed energy to destroy the attacking projectiles with 90% success rate. 



For a more surgical, faster, and economically capable military–next up laser defense goes offense. 



It’s got to, we’ve all seen the movie. 😉
