Navy Scheduled to Deploy Laser Weapon Next Year.

Navy Scheduled to Deploy Laser Weapon Next Year.

The Navy is scheduled to deploy a laser weapons system early next year on board the amphibious transport dock Ponce. The laser weapon system uses heat energy to destroy targets.

The goal is to deploy a low-cost, high-energy weapon against such threats as drones, fast-attack boats and small watercraft that attack simultaneously in large numbers.
