I addressed your second post above earlier on in the thread.
In response your your first comment above, well, of course it's important to know it's coming. That's really the whole point. I'm not sure if you
understand how the coating would work, but using that over a selection of prisms to separate the incoming beam according to the rotating wavelength
pattern (which is key to know), along with a cooling system that is also aided by the vacuum of space, would work as a way to get an "reflector" to
work. In short intervals, and as long as the entry-point was covered until it's needed so that too many particles did not fall onto the lens and build
up, it would be fine.
In the case of an incoming beam of light, for a countermeasure, using a similar methodology, not just using said coating, but also the "pin tree"
meta-material coating (to bend the light around the target using a tiny transmitter), along with an inner chemical layer that reacts to heat and
causes a reaction resulting in cool temperatures per millisecond of heat applied would provide a moment
in time for the beam's target at least
a brief moment's notice to release it's payload, or drop to a second-stage in deployment. There's more to it (another couple layers civilians wouldn't
have access to anyways) in terms of optic adjustments (left out on purpose) and the acceleration aspect but that's enough. It doesn't matter how hot
it is at that point, there is leeway. More like a bulletproof vest, where it's only good for one short burst. Afterwards, it's material for the
garbage. It's complicated and expensive but when it's comes to missiles, probably worth the expenditure, no?
I do this kind of thing for a living. Without going into it, I guess, you can take my word for it and look into my design theory or just figure it for
a crazy person's ramblings. There are all kinds here on ATS, I've noticed. Not directed at you, by the way.
