China shows us what the first laser capable of shooting down drones in mid-flight looks like


Undoubtedly, despite the fact that companies, such as DJI, already offer via software the possibility that any state may put restrictions so that their drones do not fly over different areas, the truth is that misinformation or the desire to 'harm'may be superior not to mention the ability to purchase certain software that can remove these restrictions. Due to this, it is not surprising that certain tools to get down drones that invade a certain protected airfield.

One of the tools that is attracting the most attention these days is the one that has just been presented by a group of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics, nothing less than a powerful laser weapon with enough power that, as they would have already demonstrated during field tests with 30 small remotely piloted unmanned aircraft, is capable of shooting down low-flying drones.

The Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics develops a laser weapon capable of shooting down drones in mid-flight.

This weapon, as has been commented by those responsible, is the first of its kind worldwide and can be coordinated with a radar. When fired, it appears to be capable of disabling the drone as it has enough power to burn and erode the target's surface as well as its functional parts. As a detail, tell you that according to the studies carried out, apparently one of these weapons would have the capacity to cover an area of ​​12 square kilometers.

As discussed in the previous section, this weapon has enough power to burn certain functional parts and parts, enough to knock down the drone, which means that all the internal electronics, covered by these parts, remain intact, something essential to be able to meet the drone owner.
