Navy warship uses a new high-energy laser to shoot down drone in mid-flight – Pacific

The USS Portland successfully disabled an unmanned aerial vehicle in mid-flight during the test of a new “high-energy laser weapon system” on May 16, according to U.S. Pacific Fleet.

Video footage released by the Navy on Friday shows the amphibious transport dock ship firing a Laser Weapon System Demonstrator, or LWSD, somewhere in the Pacific. A separate clip shows the drone being shot down.

The test marks the “first system-level implementation of a high-energy class solid-state laser,” the statement said.

The technology allows the Portland to redefine war at sea for the Navy, said the ship’s commander, Capt. Karrey Sanders.
