As someone who is older.. Never thought I would see this day. Star Wars meet the U.S Navy! As someone who loves scifi, I am quite excited about this prospect.
Here is a little bit from the story.
ARLINGTON, Va. (CBSDC) — Expect to see the Navy using lasers on ships within the next couple of years.
Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder, chief of the Office of Naval Research, tells Wired that they have pushed up the timetable from four years to two to install laser weapons on board ships.
We’re well past physics,” Klunder told the magazine. “We’re just going through the integration efforts. Hopefully, that tells you we’re well mature, and we’re ready to put these on naval ships.”
Is that COOL or what! You can read the full story at the source.
