Dynamite with a laser beam

The state-of-the-art weapons systems, known as Directed Energy Weapons (DEW), are powered solely by electricity and operate without ammunition.

The systems could be fuelled by a vehicle’s engine or a generator, significantly reducing their operating costs and providing unprecedented flexibility on the frontline.

In a Prior Information Notice (PIN) published this week, the MOD announced it is seeking to develop three new DEW demonstrators to explore the potential of the technology and accelerate its introduction onto the battlefield.

For example, the US had an airforce way back in 1775. Well over a century before powered flight was even believed possible.

Balloonists with catapults?

Well I would love to work on this. I have a bit of a background in Laser physics( before the poo industry )., but I usually get interviewed by an eccentric with egg in his beard, and it takes my attention.:CryBaby:

I previously worked in what Americans call "missiles", but we polite British refer to as "single use delivery vehicles". Aren't we nice?

I remeber working long ago with someone who was on the guidance side of development and took exception to that.
