US army chiefs are to be handed a laser weapon that developers say will blast drones from the sky.

Weapon manufacturing giant Lockheed Martin says it has finished a 60-kilowatt laser system that will be handed to the Army for further testing.

First tests on the tank saw it reach 58 kilowatts of power but bosses at Lockheed believe it will fulfil its full potential in the next few months as development continues.

The “combined fibre” laser beam uses several lasers to form a larger, stronger beam.

Now it is expected to transport the tank to an army base in Alabama.

Robert Afzal, senior fellow for laser and sensor systems at Lockheed Martin, said: “We’re really at the dawn of an era of the utility of laser weapons.”

Boeing has also been testing similar weapons and shared a video in 2014 of a 10-kilowatt laser destroying an airborne mortar.

Military experts are particularly excited about the developments because firing laser weapons will cost a fraction of the price of firing traditional weapons, be more accurate and will not require reloading.

He told the Washington Post: “That’s $3 million to shoot down a three-or-four-hundred-dollar drone. . . . What if you could do that with a beam of light that costs a buck?”

The US army is already testing other laser weapons, however the latest Lockheed design is thought to be more powerful and portable.

Yep Rose, caught that article the other day and thought UH OH.

What with the current civil defence ads on telly detailing what type of earthquakes trigger tsunamis, makes me wonder what they are planning next.

From the dept of Civil Defence. The Future of National Emergency Management conference 2017, which they have interestingly titled "making it happen". Wellington 7-9 June.

June eh! I remember the Waitangi day earthquake prophecy given 06/02/2011 where an elder got up and gave a message he had given to him in a dream over 30 years prior, he said he didn't know the time day or year, just that it was the month of June!

Ack Lee Jun-fan!!! Spooky.

There was a discussion going on here not long ago about how they are planning to move a lot of Govt stuff to the Whanganui Region. Ferry crossings to Nelson planned and everything.

They are up to sumthin for sure, lets hope its not this year.
