The Most Powerful Laser weαpσn in Development

Towards the end of 2021, the United States government awarded Boeing and General Atomics a joint contract to create a prototype for a weαpσn that could potentially revolutionize national defense.

In the last decade, the military tested several 30-kilowatt laser weαpσns, but this new enterprise sought to develop a laser device that was ten times as powerful.

It is expected that Boeing and General Atomics will soon demonstrate the concept of a 300-kilowatt-class solid-state Distributed Gain High Energy Laser weαpσn System, just in time given the recent trials that China has carried out with hypersonic weαpσns
