A French company are now working on "targeting" point 1000mw Laser Pointer beam guiding system, the goal is to destroy the missilea ccurately with a laser beam within 10 microradians range, and not restricted by the speed of motion of a missile. Also, it is expected that French dret company will work with the German company together in gas lasers based on jointly developed "spiral" laser weapon system.
Pioneer of laser weapon
Pioneer of burning laser perhaps was Archimedes. The first science fiction mentioned laser weapons should be "the war of the worlds"which was published in 1889. In the book, aliens use a thermal beam weapons. Sounds pretty like today's laser.The first film mention of the laser is "the gold fingers". 007 tied on a platform and a burning laser walk cross his body.In short terms, a common flashlight light is composed of many different wavelengths, laser is a single wavelength, a single direction to send out a beam of electromagnetic waves.The principle of laser is quite complex, but basically give a kind of energy that can stimulate the laser, the electron in this kind of material will jump up a energy level. When the electrons fall back, they will send a specific wavelength . A lot of such substances are simultaneously launched, produce a single direction light beam.
Why there is not a laser gun now? In fact, it is a problem of "energy". There should always be a energy source for the powerful laser weapon.The laser is so strong that it can beat the plane down in the air.We know it will be realized one day, but within a short period of time it is limited to the energy produced and energy storage technology, 100mw Laser Pointer weapons can only exist in self energy generating capacity of large vehicles (airplane, ship).
Awesome Soviet laser weapon
In 1987, a Soviet vessel attacked two U. S. military aircraft in Hawaii in the North Pacific Ocean with Attack Laser Pointer weapon. One is the Navy P-3C anti submarine aircraft, the other is the air force WC-135 aircraft. According to reports, the Soviet Union shipborne laser blind the piolet of WC-135 aircraft.
The research of laser weapon began in the early 70s and had made a great progress. 1980, according to the U.S. intelligence agencies collected intelligence, the development of the former Soviet Union high energy laser weapons program is huge, high energy laser weapon development capability has been close to the United States laser weapon. Mounted laser weapon in the ship is mainly used for short-range defense, according to reports, the Soviet Union million ton "Kirov" cruiser have been equipped with a DF chemical laser weapon, the weapon can destroyed 10 um sea skimming missile, and can be transmitted to the water to destroy submarine hull.
European countries have been organized a rule for developing a laser weapon. Its purpose is to ensure the European arms have a strong competitive power in the world market, and to reduce the dependence on the United States. At the same time, the European countries are prepared to cooperate in the field of 11 laser weapons technology.British used a small power laser attack Argentine low flying aircraft in 1982 during the Falklands conflict, due to the laser weapon can make glass cockpit covered with a layer of light. According to reports, this laser weapon can only be used as defense, the effective range of it is only 1.5 km.
