Lockheed Martin Laser Weapon Turns Up

30kw laser weapon disabled a truck from more than a mile away in their recent tests:

Lockheed-Martin-ATHENA-laser-weapon-truck

Full story on the Lockheed Martin website.  I wish there was a video up of that… I’m sure it probably just looks like a cutting torch taken to the hood, but it still would have been cool to put into perspective.  I did look up other videos of the ADAM laser on YouTube, and yea it looks like someone is using a cutting torch on the item.

So now the question on everyone’s mind is, when are they going to use this to cut ISIS members in half from several miles away?  It if wasn’t stooping to their level, putting propaganda videos of that up on YouTube would definitely send a message.  Not like they would care anyway though.  Human lives (even members of their own group) are disposable to those guys.

I’m sure currently this laser gun, like all of LM’s other high powered laser guns and coil guns take up a fair amount of space.  Can you imagine once effective man-stopper hand held laser weapons no bigger than the size of a current handgun are available to the general public?  It’s going to be crazy.  I can see it now too – “The founding fathers never wrote the 2nd Amendment to include laser guns… it was only for hunting”.

Thoughts?

Please tell me this is some ‘Real Genius’ level stuff. When is Lockheed going to make a house explode with popcorn?

So….you’re saying we could well have phased plasma rifles just under to 2029 earmark?

We only have until November to have hoverboards and flying cars.
