OC...although this was your reply to the other person...I would like to add something. The Breakthrough with the FEL has just happened very recently....7 years from conception....1 year on the Drawing Board...1 Year of Testing....!8 Months of Building a Land Based Nuclear Powered FEL that worked so well...a second land Based FEL was built and although these were supposed to be for experimentation for Tracking and there was a Hold Up when a Conventional Style Laser Reflection Mirror placed on a Satellite and first time the FEL shot a Beam at it to reflect the beam for over the horizon targeting...the FEL Beam VAPORIZED THE MIRROR!
In quite possibly the shortest time in HISTORY...a different form of Reflection Tech. was placed aboard a Far Earth Satellite and launched into orbit. The New Reflection system worked better than expected and it has been called a VERY LUCKY FLUKE! It is not a Mirror but whispers state it looks more like the EYE OF A DRAGON FLY. This allows for return of MULTIPLE SPLIT BEAMS and supposedly each Micro-Eye within the Multiple Eye can be turned, swiveled, extended and even flexed. This would allow for a Single FEL BEAM to return to MULTIPLE TARGETS at the Speed of Light and this makes the Reflection Tech. capable of Vaporizing many SMALL TARGETS such as a group of Taliban numbering 50 to 100 dug in on a Mountain Side attacking our Troops. IR-DETECTION verified by anything from a F-15 to a Humvee with a GPS IR-DETECTOR or a Satellite.
I don't think the FEL is as advanced as SplitInfinity thinks it is, but it is a priority of the Navy.
Still in a high-intensity conflict against a technologically sophisticated adversary, all naval surface fleets have a lifetime of hours to days against submarines and aircraft. There will be many very expensive and sunk nuclear reactors.
25 year old torpedo technology is plenty good.edit on 26-9-2012 by mbkennel because: (no reason given)
IWORLD WIDE, NSA Super Computers...ie...EPSILON...with the ability to intercept and record EVERY ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION ON EARTH, A COVERT ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND COMPUTER HACKING WARFARE BUDGET that is larger than the GNP of a European Country, The current QUANTUM COMPUTER PROJECT which is whispered to have been successful and numerous other programs.
The QUANTUM COMPUTER PROJECT...if completed or when completed...will give the U.S. Military the ability to DECODE or CRACK other Countries Guidance Systems even if they are using a Changing Algorithmic Encryption Signal or any standard 40 bit, 128 bit, 256 bit, 1024 bit, 1039 bit and higher...but it is the ALGORITHMIC ENCRYPTION that countries such as the U.S., Russia and even China to an extent that a QUANTUM COMPUTER COULD BREAK in a matter of seconds. This ability allows for an Electronic Warfare Aircraft to SHUT DOWN MISSILE GUIDANCE as well as HACK A COUNTRIES MAIN FRAME MILITARY COMPUTERS at ease.
This should be noted...and I know this as a FACT. The U.S. Military has the ability to make it's Military Main Frames UNHACKABLE.
TTargeting and Tracking and any Defensive/ Offensive Systems such as the FEL and MEB...which U.S. SPACE COMMAND has designed Protocols of which Space Command to FEL and MEB Satellite Communication is performed in a Multiple Redundancy Fashion as well as has Protocols to VAPORIZE any target within any distance considered to be a danger as these Satellites are NOT NEAR EARTH SATELLITES....
