Laser used to shoot down drones | MishMash | Scoop.it

A laser weapons system that can shoot down two drones at a distance of over a mile has been demonstrated by Rheinmetall Defence.

 

The German defence firm used the high-energy laser equipment to shoot fast-moving drones at a distance.

 

The system, which uses two laser weapons, was also used to cut through a steel girder a kilometre away.

 

The company plans to make the laser weapons system mobile and to integrate automatic cannon.
