I do think the guy got a little excited and started connecting dots. I also agree Zaph, I do think that the Naval Base Ventura County (Directed Energy Systems Integration Laboratory) that will open in 2021 - which will have the testing area over the west coast over water is probably where the majority of the testing will take place.

There's also a lot of laser based communications testing going on right now. Both the NASA facility and the Intel facility would make more sense for testing that than testing an aircraft based laser channel.

Cool, video to start the day, very interesting to say the least. Had no idea we were in partnership with brazil on this kind of level. At the same time I really don't see what they would contribute. Why would we share such advanced tech with them. But the 17 second 440 mile lightning bolt was interesting.

Now the claim is aircraft fire lasers infront of them to superheat the atmosphere and thus can obtain more speed. But this seems counter intuitive. If the issue at high speeds is the heat of the atmosphere, then how would shooting a laser to superheat the atmosphere allow the craft through faster? You would think you would want to cool the atmosphere down infront of you. But at those speeds and the many unknowns in could be a double negative type situation.

Either way like I said thanks for sharing nice little gem to start the day


There is now a thread here by Summer5 with another yt vid about this same topic, www.abovetopsecret.com...

NASA is using a columnated xray beam for communications in space, they are testing it on the ISS as we speak

HiFire has been in the works for a few years now.

In process, iirc. Zaph can probably speak to that more than I.
