Cutting-edge laser weapons suitable for combat use have been developed. They can be adjusted in size, weight, power, and the level of insulation in order to fit into the appropriate tactical platform, said the company Lockheed Martin.

American developers of the company Lockheed Martin announced that they possess technologies that allow suitable laser weapons for combat use.

“They can be packaged into a size, weight, power and thermal which can be fit onto relevant tactical platforms, whether it’s a ship, whether it’s a ground vehicle or whether it’s an airborne platform,“ said Paul Shattuck, the director of one of the divisions of the company Directed Energy Systems.

Shattuck also added that the time when the technologies could be put into operation is "a question of desire."
