It's a Northrop Gruman production so ask them
Anyone wanna see a purchase order for Multiple Kill Vehicles? Got a lot of black ink though

This all looks like a bunch of Eisenhower era Popular Science stuff. The only thing I can remember about Johnson and Johnson from back then is that their powder felt good on my butt. With all this technical achievement you would think that they would have put that star they produced on earth to better use in the way of power plant technology? The non proliferation or prior art contracts are the only reasons I can think of that would have prevented the development of fusion plants. Companies with big money invested in oil and fission could squash a third technical competitor. I know all the cut and paste crap claims we haven't even got to break even with fusion technology but what if the real reason is political?

The proposed space-based neutral particle beam would shoot an unbendable beam of hydrogen molecules at approximately 60,000 kilometers per second to disrupt the electronics and warhead of an incoming missile.

Have all the data on the Laser here including photos and links to the secure LLNL site
But what is note worthy, other than us creating a small star on Earth , is this...
Excerpt... When the United States ceased nuclear testing, laser facilities became even more important for defense research, and the portion of Nova shots dedicated to the weapons program increased considerably. Researchers using Nova continued obtaining high-energy-density data necessary to validate the computer codes used to model nuclear weapons physics.
Though while the release of this was only recent (Project Camelot had a bit on it's existence in an interview a couple years back) it has in fact been operating for a LONG time
From 1973 to 1977, the Laboratory built four laser systems: (a) the one-beam Cyclops; (b) the one- and two-beam Janus system, which is still in use; (c) the two-beam Argus; and (d) the 20-beam Shiva. Each new laser provided more power and better control over the target-irradiation conditions as well as produced higher temperatures and greater compression and density in the deuterium–tritium fuel than its predecessor.
This is one of the Laser crystals. Must see the rest of the photos on my link
The MIT Space Systems Laboratory developed the SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites) laboratory environment to provide DARPA, NASA, and other researchers with a long term, replenishable, and upgradable testbed for the validation of high risk metrology, control, and autonomy technologies for use in formation flight and autnomous docking, rendezvous and reconfiguration algorithms. These technologies are critical to the operation of distributed satellite and docking missions such as Terrestrial Planet Finder and Orbital Express.

I know that the "real" reason is that they were broke. But I believe that there is a little more to it then that. I know that the Russians have big ego's.(not all of them anyway, this is my perception of the situation). So my assumption is that they would rather go "broke" then admit that they got beat at their own little war games.
The first of three SPHERES satellites reached the International Space Station on 24-April-2006 aboard Progress P21. The first operating sessions occurred on Thursday, 18-May-2006 from 10:30am-1:30pm CST.

U.S. Navy Laser Weapon Shoots Down Drones in Test
During a recent test, a Navy laser using a tracking system from Raytheon shot down four unmanned aerial vehicles
In a grainy, black-and-white video that looks like a home movie of a UFO attack a sleek aircraft streaks through the sky one minute, only to burst into flames the next and plummet into the sea. The silent video, which Raytheon Co. debuts Monday at the U.K.'s Farnborough International Air Show 2010, however, is not science fiction. The defense contractor says it depicts part of a test conducted in May during which the U.S. Navy used a solid-state laser to shoot down unmanned aerial vehicles over the Pacific Ocean.
During the test, the Navy's Laser Weapon System (LaWS), guided by Raytheon's Phalanx Close-In Weapon System sensors, engaged and destroyed four UAV targets flying over water near the Navy's weapons and training facility on San Nicolas Island in California's Santa Barbara Channel, about 120 kilometers west of Los Angeles. The Phalanx—a rapid-fire, computer-controlled, radar-guided gun system—used electro-optical tracking and radio frequency sensors to provide range data to the LaWS, which is made up of six solid-state lasers with an output of 32 kilowatts that simultaneously focus on a target.

This would make a great UFO video.... I bet it would get thousands of flags

I laughed at that laser shootdown footage you posted. I know Easynow and I joked about it awhile back too when it first was released, because if you tried to tell me that footage was actually shot 30 years ago, I would say the quality of the footage seems to be from about that era.
Although military applications of lasers were kept largely a secret, we published an article that pieced together bits of information to conclude that laser radiation weapons would soon reach perfection. We reported that military researchers had used a laser beam to shoot down a drone. Additionally, the Air Force thought it possible to build a space-based laser system that would guide missiles into targeted countries. Military planners also cooked up a laser defense system, which would disable incoming missiles in just seconds. Just nine years later, however, President Reagan's controversial Strategic Defense Initiative ("Star Wars") would research lasers as defensive weapons and test concepts for an X-ray laser beam.
On November 13, 1973, the laser was used against a 12 foot long Northrop MQM-33B radio controlled aerial target, a drone, in an attempt to knock it out of the air. Indeed, the drone did drop, but not precisely as planned. The laser beam burned through the drone’s aluminum skin, frying the control system. The Air Force had hoped the beam would ignite the drone’s fuel tank. The next day, the laser performed according to expectations. The beam found and locked onto the area of the drone where the fuel tank was located for 1.2 seconds, long enough to raise the temperature on the exterior of the fuel tank to ignite the interior vapors. This time the drone went down in a fireworks-like burst of smoke and flame. The two tests marked the first time that aerial targets had ever been destroyed by a highenergy laser.
On May 26, 1983, the ALL shot down an AIM-9B Sidewinder air-to-air missile over California’s China Lake, a feat it quickly repeated. On May 31, it destroyed another Sidewinder, then, on June 1, two more [Other accounts report that in these tests in May and June 1983, the ALL destroyed four other AIM-9B missiles]. The final test for the ALL took place on 26 September 1983. In a joint experiment with the Navy, the ALL shot down and destroyed three 23-foot-long, ground-launched, BMQ-34A Navy drones, representing a Russian cruise missile, a weapon of deep concern to the Navy. The interception and destruction of the three drones signaled that the ALL program was a resounding success, proving that the goal of airborne anti-missile defense was indeed realistic.
The Navy’s death ray weapon keeps burning through laser records, on its way to the ultimate goal of searing through 2,000 feet of steel per second.
The Free Electron Laser’s latest milestone involved running its electron injection system for eight hours at 500 kilovolts. That will help the laser become more powerful and more deadly, as Wired’s
The FEL will be a multiple-wavelength weapon that can be altered to account for all the variables it would encounter at sea, like aerosols and moisture in the air. The laser doesn’t use any crystals or inverted prisms or any other materials to focus its light — it works like a particle accelerator, moving electrons around a racetrack to speed them up.
I agree with what Wernher von Braun said that America will 'create 4 enemies in order to justify spending billions on space and regular armaments 1)Russia 2)Terrorists 3)Asteroids 4)Alien Invasion false flag.

An experimental "hyperspectral" spy sat which is able to detect buried roadside bombs and concealed cave or tunnel entrances has been handed over to the US forces for operational use in the Wars on Stuff.
The TacSat-3 was launched aboard a Minotaur-1 rocket along with several other small satellites from Wallops Island, Virginia, in May 2009. The TacSat was designed to prove the US concept of "operationally responsive space", where a military user can make a request and a small inexpensive satellite can be in a suitable orbit within days rather than months or years.
(NSI News Source Info) WASHINGTON, - June 11, 2010: U.S. defense spending to develop and buy new weapons systems is not expected to drop dramatically in coming years, but a gradual drawdown may occur, the Pentagon's No. 2 acquisition official said on Thursday. Frank Kendall, principal deputy undersecretary for acquisition and technology, said the Defense Department was keenly focused on reforming its acquisition process and making it more efficient, getting more for the money it spends, increasing oversight and reducing risk on new programs.
NSI News Source Info) EL SEGUNDO, Calif., - June 11, 2010: Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) hyperspectral imaging sensor known as ARTEMIS is being prepared for a first-of-its-kind tactical military role by the Air Force Space Command. The company's Advanced Responsive Tactically Effective Military Imaging Spectrometer has successfully completed its one-year experimental mission aboard the Air Force Research Laboratory's Tactical Satellite-3. Based on the success of that mission, Raytheon has been notified that the Air Force Space Command will take control of TacSat-3 with the intent to use ARTEMIS in an operational capacity. "The ARTEMIS hyperspectral imager gives military commanders an important new advantage in the asymmetric battlefield," said Bill Hart, vice president for Raytheon Space Systems. "ARTEMIS can detect various man-made and natural materials, which adds a fundamentally new capability for the DoD."
