"Stephenson, vice president of Northrop’s new “Directed Energy Systems” business area, said the Army pulled the plug late last year on plans to develop a mobile version of THEL on the grounds it would be too bulky.

Since then, Northrop has designed a second-generation, “relocatable” system that’s about one-quarter the size of the one now at White Sands, N.M, with the same capability, he said."
