US Tests High-Energy Laser Weapons From Sea; Where Does India Stand IN DEWs?

India has already proven its vision for laser weapons as well as the scientific talent to absorb and build on the technology after its initial successes with a vehicle-mounted 1-kilowatt laser weapon system tested in July 2018.

Meanwhile, the US Navy has recently announced its successful attempt at a new high-energy laser weapon that can destroy aircraft mid-flight. The US Navy provided pictures and videos to show the amphibious transport dock ship USS Portland executing “the first system-level implementation of a high-energy class solid-state laser” to disable an aerial drone aircraft, the Navy had said in a statement.


India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has two dedicated centres – Centre for High Energy Systems and Sciences (CHESS) and Laser Science & Technology Centre (LASTEC) have been working to develop laser weapons technology for the last few years.
