US Army tested Buggy with Anti-Awl Laser

The American company Raytheon has developed a promising buggy with anti-thrust laser. During tests, close to combat, 12 unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down using a laser.

US Army tested Buggy with Anti-Awl Laser

According to the developers, the new combat vehicle was created based on the Polaris MRZR buggy. This is a lightweight four-seater SUV that is 3,6 meters in length, 1,5 meters in width and 1,9 meters in height. The car is equipped with a 88 powerful gasoline engine with a volume of 875 cubic centimeters.

The MTS multispectral sighting station with optical-electronic and infrared cameras, as well as a laser module with an optical system, are installed on the buggy. Details about the power of the laser system and the power supply system used are not disclosed.

During exercises conducted by the US Army at the Fort Sill base site in Oklahoma, the buggy was actively moving around the landfill and was laser-fired at all the detected "enemy" UAVs. In total, 12 drones of the first and second classes were shot down with the help of a laser.

The first-class vehicles include drones weighing up to nine kilograms, capable of flying at altitudes up to 365 meters at speeds of up to one hundred knots (about 185 kilometers per hour). The second class includes devices weighing from 9 to 25 kilograms, capable of flying at a height of up to one thousand meters, reports portal "N + 1"

    One homemade rocket from a drone, and this cart will be scrap! There, probably, drones flew at a speed of 30 km / h, above the head itself, and did not maneuver in height?

      Someone has already suggested sticking confetti and serpentine against drones and copters. Well, their propellers clog. lol

      ... this cart will become scrap! ...

      I suspect that I have something with vision request
      Either the photo was not taken very well, or is there a cable in the background that goes to this miracle of the design idea of ​​Raytheon engineers? lol
      ... the buggy was actively moving around the landfill ...

      Question: who saw how this buggy was actively moving? laughing
      On one of the resources they write:
      ... The family of laser anti-dron systems replenished with a very interesting development. Raytheon Corporation of America Launches Counter-Laser Buggy! One full charge of the installation allows it to destroy hostile UAVs within 4 hours and make up to 30 shots ...

      And here is this photo (rear view):

        During recharging, after 30 shots, of course, the cable will be connected. Any weapon
        need to recharge.

        The toad smothers them. Right now, a boom will begin. Laser on a bike, laser on a scooter. Burned a hundred, a thousand UAVs. Shot down a satellite, etc. And what can bring down a laser on a battery? Stone Age.

    somehow not very reliable. They will cover the drone with something reflective and that's all ...

      Just looking for someone kag. For those who have a compact nuclear reactor, one way, for those who have batteries and a scooter, the other

      This is power. Something hit the copter, and then, as if in confirmation, they showed a hungry Negro, the wheels of these same bugs, and the rest of the time, short throws of some incomprehensible people in camouflage. But the music said so, it’s not Russian airborne tanks for you — it's awesome !!!!!!! I have believed.

    For some reason, nothing is heard for dust, dirt, rain, foil coating (already) and the laws of physics. Canceled? And such buggies can travel along permanent routes without a driver, and not one buggy, but many according to the maximum coverage algorithm ..

      That's all the charm, right now they will buy bugs, and then they will come up with a battery for lasers and upgrade bugs. By that time, unmanned bugs will already be invented and all the cheeks of the bunch will be, according to our collective farm, according to the algorithm.

    Well, it seems that not only Americans are working in this direction?
    Ukrainian unmanned intelligence discovered in the Donbass "unknown latest systems" that supposedly block the work of drones. A video about this device was published by Ukrainian volunteers from the support fund for the punitive operation “Come back alive.”

      In the meantime, a UAV fell into the Ukraine. Bugs with a laser are resting.

    Nice video, thanks. And the machine is really good, only now ... A rotorcraft dragonfly hangs there in front of some hangar. Hanging and hanging in one place ... and then falls. Is he out of gas or is there a connection with the operator? No, I understand: the laser beam there and all that ... The apparatus fell and broke something there, it broke due to an impact, but what is the trick ?. Yes, anyone here takes such a crap without any photoshop. But confetti is serious
    fellow !

    Much cheaper and more effective will be the usual mail with a reduced caliber and its own sighting radar complex.

      Shilka, it's a stone age. LASER on a scooter, that's what makes you start. up to 8 shots an hour! negative Unheard of know-how. And you say shilka, tell me another landing tank with a 125 mm cannon. Kindergarten. With such children, the Yankees do not even want to fight.

    Well, here the strategy is clear 3 pieces at a distance and there is no reason for free flight
