Wow-this is pretty amazing technology. It appears that the issues with miniaturizing the laser systems are becoming less and less and that we will see new systems in place in the near future. And according to the article, if this thing has been operating in "test mode" successfully, you can bet the US has a bunch of these bad boys already deployed for a SHTF scenario.

And of course this is just whats been released....who knows? That space plane that was sent up a few months ago may have this on board...or satellites...or.........
