American General Atomics is ready to test a new high-power laser weapon module

153
The American company GA (General Atomics) has spread a message about its development of photon (laser) energy weapons. According to company representatives, the start of testing of such weapons will begin in the near future. The public saw the autonomous weapon module Tactical Laser Weapon Module at the exhibition Navy's Sea-Air-Space Exposition. In this case, information on a number of technical characteristics of the laser module has not yet been disclosed.

The site IEEE Spectrum It is reported that the company's stand at the above exhibition attracted the attention of visitors. The same site states that the weapon functions using beams of high-coherent light with power from 75 to 300 kW. For comparison, a laser installation from Lockheed Martin It has an "output" of about 10 kW of power.

American General Atomics is ready to test a new high-power laser weapon module


New photon (laser) modules from the company General atomics will differ in size depending on the power of the pulse. The compact module has a volume of no more than 2 cubic meters and is able to be installed on any vehicle, up to the usual SUV. The mass of the device depends on how many pulses it can produce until the battery is completely discharged. According to some data, in terms of the mass-output power ratio, American company specialists achieved very significant results: around 4 kg per 1 kW. In other words, an installation with an output of 300 kW will have a mass of about 1200 kg.



The weapon is controlled by the use of a plug-in controller, which requires aiming a target laser at the target. Then it remains to press only one button.

The company GA says that such weapons can be installed on heavily armed AC-130 or aircraft V-22 Osprey. It can also be used (in relatively light versions) for the Predator C Plus super-heavy drones.

              No, I'm just one of these same Slavs. In my family there are Russians and Ukrainians, and therefore the attitude towards this war. After all, it is the Russians, or the Ukrainians of the southeast of Ukraine, who are dying, who have become "Ukrainians" in less than a week. And the phishists of Bandera stand behind, on the rear, or on the flatters, and of course the two kucheryavinkaya are in charge of the process, the commissar. So who will you be, not one of the second?

      In fact, laser systems make sense only as a near-field defense that protects against massive attacks from the air (missiles can end, and lasers will pair while there is energy).

          Firstly, there will be not one laser, but a group of lasers. Secondly, it is not necessary to count on the advance of a laser shot (unlike anti-aircraft artillery), since the laser shoots at the speed of light, this makes it easier to calculate for a shot. Thirdly, a laser gun can have several capacitors, so that while one is emptied when fired, the others are recharged with energy, so to speak, then you can shoot practically continuously. Guidance is carried out on radars, optical and infrared sensors. The time to destroy the reflective coating will not matter if the laser is powerful enough.

            Using these devices, the target is fixed. Guidance is carried out by the platform on which the installation is located. But this was modestly silent. On the SUV they are going to install. Yeah, in a Mercedes. And bring on the trefoil on the hood. Another divorce of their own government for money.

            As far as I understand from the article, this module is designed for a certain number of shots. That is, without additional power supply, it is like a flashlight on a battery. Moreover, it says about the power of the pulse. But it is not said about the time of the impulse. And who can say how long it takes to destroy a flying rocket.
            So this hr * ny can be singly charged.

        For efficiency comparable to missile weapons, so much energy is needed that it is just right to put the installation next to a power line.

          It is doubtful that this will help. There is no need for a feeble power station at hand - of course, for a really effective weapon.
          The most important thing is not indicated: what is the scattering of a laser beam in the atmosphere, how does a laser beam react to it cloudiness, fog, smoke, etc.? I remember that they were calculated by power: with a laser output of 1000 kW with a range of destruction of an air target in clear weather, in any case, it does not exceed 2-3 km. And what is such a weapon for? And how much energy must be spent to get these 1000 kW of radiation power at the output? Effective use of the laser is possible in space - there the beam scatters extremely weakly.

              The efficiency of a laser is NOT determined by the perfection of its parts; they can safely be taken for perfect. It is determined by the quantum yield of that electron cloud, which is used as an active medium. It also determines the properties of radiation, and then nothing can be done especially by engineering methods. And all this is just the properties of atoms, which are impossible to change. Or in any case - not in our power. Therefore, the dream of a free electron laser.
              In fact, lasers are one of the few direct quantum grins of the Universe that we observe, and even use a little. Along with the hardening of metal alloys, say.
              To give further money to the engineers for all this is a waste. For the next step, we need new physical principles and phenomena that we either do not know at all or have studied very little. What is still fundamental science.

        In a rain or fog, this child prodigy will not work, as well as in dusty, smoky or just high humidity conditions.

        For the sake of laughter through tears, one can recall that in October 1984 in the Feodosiya training ground from the experimental ship "Foros" for the first time in the history of the Soviet Navy were conducted test firing from a laser cannon. On the whole, the shooting was successful, the low-flying missile was timely detected and destroyed by a laser beam.
        The rocket was not painted black; the trajectory was unknown.

            Wrong understand. The target is not watts, but Joules. Therefore, you will always have the product of the pulse duration by the average power. For a long time, picosecond lasers have existed with stunning imagination power, while they are not even able to set fire to a match at a distance of 1 cm.

                  Good evening, Oleg! hi
                  According to your link, 9 years have passed since the publication of this article, and from the moment of the tests mentioned in the article - even 11 - there is still nothing real in the USA, just cut the money. request Of course, any research will at least lead to the accumulation of experience among specialists and to the training of young people - and this is not enough.
                  But the main questions for the combat laser are: what is the dispersion of the beam per 1 km of air? How does the state of the atmosphere depend on beam scattering? What is the required output laser power in order to bring down an aircraft for at least 10 km? And what will be the power of the installation, which will output this necessary radiation power?
                  In the USA, these studies were REALLY conducted as part of the SDI. We concluded: to destroy ballistic missiles in space, you can use a nuclear-pumped X-ray laser, that is, a bomb practically explodes, and the laser uses its energy to destroy strategic nuclear missile warheads. This undertaking did not work: the economy let us down - the cost of such a laser is a hundred times higher than the cost of those missiles that it is capable of destroying. But the effective combat use of lasers in the atmosphere is an extremely dubious thing. I have no doubt that this is possible, just the same effect can be achieved hundreds of times cheaper ways.

                  PS
                  Since the year 2000, THEL intercepted five artillery projectiles and 28 rocket targets, including the short range 122mm Katyusha type rockets fired singly and in salvos and larger, long range 160mm rockets which has twice the range of the standard katyusha. Most recently, on August 24, 2004 the system intercepted and destroyed mortar bombs, fired both single and in salvos.

                  What is it, 6 artillery shells and 5 28mm Katyusha missiles were intercepted in 122 years of testing? Is that all? request I wonder how you can even believe the author of the article, who calls the 122 mm rocket launcher "Katyusha"? good

                    The lack of advanced technologies and basic research in Russia is due not to the desire to cut money?
                    About the Nautilus. It was created together with Israel and for Israel. Tests have confirmed its effectiveness. The cost of interception was from $ 1000 to $ 3000, which is not very bad. When it came time to decide on his future fate, to adopt his or the Iron Dome, then Minister of Defense Amir Peretz (who made a career on the trade union line) naturally inclined toward Israeli development, the interception allowance of which then amounted to more than $ 100.
                    Time passed, the LCD coped well with missiles from 5 to 70 km, but there was practically nothing to shoot down mortar shells with. Seitsas the same Raphael announced the development of his Nautilus.

                    But the main questions for the combat laser:

                    Nautilus had to intercept at distances of up to 5 km and he coped with the task.

                      - This is not just very good - it is very, very cool. If this were true, then now artillery and missiles would be a thing of the past: after all, the mass production of such systems reduces the cost by an order of magnitude, which is cheaper or comparable to the cost of an intercepted projectile. And no defense minister could make a choice in favor of a hundred times more expensive system - the economy would not allow it. And the United States would not have invested so much in a successful (albeit not very economical) LCD, if they had the more advanced and cheaper system on hand.

                      5 km - this is really very decent - for the laser - the distance of destruction, about thirty years ago, he witnessed (but not participated) the prototype tests. The developers received a task for 10 km of confident destruction of small aircraft of the KR type (with a probability of 0,98), they managed only for a distance of about 2 km: the beam scattering in the atmosphere is too large. The installation was stationary and the sea was eating energy. Theorists then justified the inexpediency of using a laser in the atmosphere - in terms of price-quality ratio. The same results can be obtained by others. cheaper and more efficient ways.
                      Naturally, in the USSR no one set the task of destroying rocket and artillery shells in this way. After all, the ZhK is practically a KAZ, "stretched" to cover not a single tank, but a large territory. In the USSR - and now many military men have retained this approach - it was believed that it was necessary not to intercept artillery and rocket projectiles, but to engage in counter-battery work and destroy installations that fire these projectiles.

                        Debatable. At the current stage, of course, it is not very correct to expect any superpowers from the laser, but work is ongoing in this direction, billions of dollars are being invested, progress does not stop, so the result will be very soon. By the way, Russia is also developing a combat laser. They have relied on the air system and are trying to resurrect the A-60, but it is too early to talk about the results.

          Oh Professor, have you been talking to me about the materiel for a long time, but you yourself again for yours? Are you aware of the heat of the laser or not? Then we repeat the material covered!
          The main military effect of the laser beam is purely thermal, light quanta should simply be absorbed by the affected object and heat it to such a state that it becomes unusable. In order to influence the target, a certain number of joules must reach it. It is difficult to say exactly how much, and even if this is known, they will most likely not talk about it loudly. And yet, apparently, it is at least several tens or even hundreds of megajoules - for such vulnerable objects as a rocket with a full fuel tank, and no less than thousands megajoules - for nuclear warheads that successfully overcome dense layers of the atmosphere without losing operability . For a continuous laser, even without taking into account the beam divergence, we are already talking about powers of thousands of megawatts. But then it turns out that the power of the energy source should be millions of kilowatts! And indeed it is.

            And yet, suppose that energy is found: for example, an 1 ton of fuel per 1 shot. As is known, the usual laser operation scheme provides for the “pumping” of the working medium (crystal or gas) with energy up to a certain level, and when a jump occurs, the accumulated energy is discharged by a light beam of a certain wavelength. But where to get that energy that did not go to the goal with the beam? So, it will mostly stand out in the firing device in the form of heat. Thus, only 40% will go to the goal, but the remaining 60% will remain with us. And therefore, even having damaged the target, we can easily evaporate our own installation. It is no accident that even in much less powerful earthly installations, flowing water cooling is used not only for mirrors, but also for the working volume of the laser.

              So how then do lasers cut metal? But there both the volume of the working fluid where the laser beam is generated and the dimensions of the focusing system are incomparably larger than the heating zone. There is another problem - existing beam focusing systems use reflective mirrors. So what prevents the enemy from using the same mirror coating as a defense? Not to mention the simple rotation of the warhead, which reduces the efficiency of beam weapons by a factor of ten. Lasers had two drawbacks: low power and beam divergence. Whatever the power, but if a beam of radiation with a diameter of several kilometers falls on the target, the benefit of such a laser is zero — unless you can make a rangefinder out of it ... There is only one way to deal with beam divergence — by reducing the wavelength. However, it follows from the fundamental laws of physics that the shorter the wavelength, the more difficult it is to implement quantum amplification of radiation, or, in human terms, to build a laser. The first quantum amplifiers (masers), created in the distant 1950's, worked in the radio range (rather long waves), after a decade, lasers operating in the optical range appeared. And a decade later, a theoretical and experimental basis was formed for creating a laser in the x-ray range. However, to use such a laser as a gun for firing at warheads, fantastic pumping energy was required. Only a nuclear explosion could give it. So the professor needs to teach you the materiel, not me.

The natural divorce of suckers (military and taxpayers) on the headstock by American scientific and technical swindlers. For the reason that in the foreseeable future, “combat lasers” are not able, in principle, even to approach combat good old good guns / missiles. In the best case, their destiny is extremely narrow, specific areas of application such as burning optics for reconnaissance. equipment, sights, etc. If we talk about the use of lasers on the battlefield to “burn” tanks / infantry / missiles / aircraft, then this is just technical nonsense. And that's why. First, you only have to make a small introduction to the topic - how to evaluate and compare the impact on the target of different types of weapons. Those who are well versed in weapon physics may not read. For the rest of the educational program: What determines the degree of destruction of the target?

                        It is determined by three factors: 1) The power supplied from the weapon to the target. A commonplace banal example: the more you hit a person with your fist, the more damage he will inflict, all other things being equal. “Stronger” means applying more muscle at a greater distance in less time. This is power. With regard to guns: the faster the projectile flies, and the heavier it is, the more power. The more he damages the tank, all other things being equal. With reference to the laser - the greater the power of the beam in kilowatts, the stronger it will burn the target. And in the same kilowatts you can translate the damaging properties of any other weapon and compare them. What will we do later. 2) The second factor is the area on which we bring power from the weapon. The smaller it is, the more concentrated the target experiences, the stronger the defeat (we don’t take extreme cases!). If you push the bully with your fist, there will be nothing for him. If you poke him with an awl with exactly the same effort (power), he will not be greeted. When they want to break through a tank, they try to make it a thinner striking element. So as not to “spread” power over the area. If we shoot a beam - we must collect it on the smallest possible area. Remember children's games with lenses and the Sun. A lens collecting the light of the Sun from a circle with a diameter of 5 cm - burns paper perfectly when this beam is compressed to a size of a couple of millimeters. In principle, the first and second factors are usually combined into one - the energy flux density. That is, they receive power in watts divided by the area of ​​impact. The higher this density, the more dangerous the impact. Measured in watts per square centimeter. But I decided to break them down for clarity. 3) The ability of the target to reflect, fend off the power of the weapon. That is, for example, if we take two armor plates and a projectile flying in them, but put one sheet at an angle, then the projectile can bounce off the inclined sheet. All else being equal. That is, the degree of destruction of the target very much depends on its specific vulnerability to this type of weapon with the first two factors being equal. It’s so simple not to sort through the interaction, there are dozens of types of interaction, but then it will be easier. For now, just remember that this must be taken into account. So, we repeat once again: in order to assess the damaging effect of a weapon, we are primarily interested in its power, concentration and methods of protection. Now let's see what has been achieved in the field of lasers and conventional weapons in terms of the above criteria.

                        ) Power criterion. The most powerful laser today is the ABL chemical COIL laser. Its power is about 1 megawatts. For comparison: the power of the 76-mm division gun F-22 of the 1936 model of the year is about 150 megawatts. 150 times more! Count yourself - the kinetic energy of the projectile (M * V ^ 2) / 2 divided by the time it is reached (about 0.01 seconds). We still do not take into account the explosive energy in the projectile itself. There are still as many. Think about this simple fact: a small ancient cannon from the time of the Second World War at a price of scrap metal is hundreds of times more powerful than an ultramodern “battle” laser weighing tens of tons and costing over 5 billions of dollars. A shot from ABL alone costs millions of dollars. And this energy shot is comparable to the burst of a heavy machine gun. The power of a Kalashnikov assault rifle is about 100 kilowatts. A US-Israeli laser with the same 100 kW (THEL) power was tested, they wanted to use it to protect against Grad missile shells. THEL installation in size - 6 delivered next to the bus. The project was closed at 2006 for complete inadequacy, although it still successfully shot down missiles and mines. By heating them in flight for several seconds. (The question is - what about the volley ????) Characteristically, no one even mentioned the possibility of defeating infantry with such a laser. Otherwise, even a child would clearly see its true capabilities, comparing it with an ordinary machine gun. It should be noted that it is no coincidence that the US military and experts believe that the minimum required laser power for combat use is 100 kW. As we see, this is really enough to at least get closer to the striking power of small arms.

                        2) Laserophiles will say: well, maybe the beam can be concentrated on a small area and thereby achieve a much greater effect with less power? Indeed - after all, industry uses laser machines that quietly cut centimeter steel with powers of only about a few kilowatts. At the same time, their rays are focused on a patch of several millimeters in size. Alas! Here, the physically irresistible diffraction law comes into force, which states that the laser radiation always diverges from the angle = wavelength / beam diameter. At distances of the order of meters, it can be ignored. So what is next? If we take specifically a combat infrared laser with a wavelength of 2 μm (THEL combat lasers work at such a length, etc.) and a beam diameter of 1 cm, then we get the angle of divergence 0.2 of the milliradian (this is a very small difference - for example, ordinary laser pointers / rangefinders diverge by 5 milliradians and more). Divergence 0.2 mrad. at a distance of 100 meters, it will increase the diameter of the spot from 1 cm to approximately 3 cm (if anyone else remembers school geometry). That is, the impact density will fall in proportion to the area in 7 times only by 100 meters. That is: if we know that a laser with a power of 100 KW burns an inch steel plate at point-blank somewhere in 2-3 seconds, then at a distance of 100 meters it will do this, roughly, 18 seconds. All this time, an armored personnel carrier (or whom you are going to burn there) must by itself patiently stand and wait. Do not violate those. process, so to speak. Well, as you know - a furrow of a couple of centimeters is unlikely to upset him anyway. For comparison: armor-piercing bullets from Kalashnikov calmly pierce 16 mm steel at the same distance. And I repeat - today the 100 kW laser is a huge installation weighing tens of tons, with huge tanks of toxic chemicals and sophisticated optics. When he "shoots" - huge clouds of poisonous smoke come from him, poisoning the entire vicinity. What will happen to all this if the enemy strikes from 100 meters throughout this kitchen from his good old large-caliber KPVT - you can imagine. And the rocket can accidentally hit ... And on a kilometer the beam density will fall already 300 times.

                        Therefore, it is easy to understand that the distance of hitting a target even in 1 km for an 100-kW laser is an unattainable dream in real conditions. Unless you understand, for example, a canister of gasoline. Or a naked man tied to a tree. That is, a minimally protected target cannot be hit with such a laser at REASONABLE distances in combat conditions. By the way! On combat conditions: the battlefield is not always a desert White Sands training ground. It's rain. Snow. Fog. Explosions. Fumes. Dust. All these are almost insurmountable obstacles to the laser beam. Here, in general, you can forget about any concentration of the beam - it simply dissipates long before the goal. Who needs an assault rifle that is unable to hit targets in such conditions? I remember that the earliest firearms could not shoot in wet weather - the gunpowder was drenched. And the "shooters" just cut out the old fashioned way. Here it is, the inevitable fate of lovers of hyperboloids. 3) Also a very unpleasant point for "laser" is the ability to protect the target. And it’s very cheap and very cheerful. Because infrared rays are reflected from anything that is not hit (everyone can play with the remote control from the TV). A cheap window film with metallization reflects the vast majority of infrared radiation. Titanium reflects the IR laser very well. But we already barely brought it to the goal (just poetry!). Worse, there are also sublimation resins that are used to protect spacecraft from gigawatt heat fluxes, combined with the terrible mechanical effects of air pressure. In this case, the resin layer is damaged by a centimeter or two. That is, armor / steel is far from the most resistant material for the laser, no. It has long been an order of magnitude more "laser-resistant" coatings. It follows that even if it is possible to increase the power of laser guns by an order of magnitude, to gigawatts, this will not make them a prodigy at all. In this “sword and shield” competition, the shield has a huge, insurmountable head start. That is why laser-lasers very rarely tell WHAT goals they once again managed to hit and at what distance. And what is shown on the video raises more questions than answers. Ah well? - true laser lovers will say - but what do you all tell about chemical lasers when a technological breakthrough has already been made and “combat” solid-state light-pumping devices have appeared? There are no poisonous tanks, and they are much smaller! And decent power has already been achieved - for 100 kW!

                        And it's called beautifully - Firestrike. Hmm .. And really, a very compact little thing - 7 blocks each weighing 180 kg. Total 1300 kg. So that? A dream come true? Let's not rush. There are a couple of nuances. This huge cabinet weighing per ton is just the radiating unit itself. At least 500 kW should be supplied with electric power, given that the achieved efficiency of this laser is about 20%. (and even that is very doubtful, usually much less - less than 10%). Thus, 100 kW went into the enemy with us, and 400 kW remained in this cabinet. And these kilowatts need to be put out quickly, right? Otherwise, expensive optics will suffer. The dimensions of a cooling system of such power can be imagined by looking, for example, at a cooling installation. A rather big bandura, weighs 120 kg. The system can just serve for cooling industrial lasers; it diverts power from as many as whole 6 kW. And she consumes the same amount of electricity. So you need something the size of a truck to cool our 100 kW cabinet when firing. And all this in total will consume megawatts of electric power under 1. Well how? Do you still like breakthrough 100 kW solid-state lasers? With the unimaginable power of defeat comparable to a Kalashnikov assault rifle? If you are interested in the Professor, I can introduce you to the opinion of the physicist and creator of combat lasers in the USSR about this performance.

      What is behind? In the creation of a high-power point-based non-maneuvering weapon of doubtful applicability? The laser is good as a missile launching system, yes - but our missile defense and air defense are much better and better developed. As an attacking weapon, the laser is very doubtful: the armor of the tank will be melted long and dull, a group of people and light equipment will not be covered in one gulp, and firing from it at single weakly protected light targets - like the same infantry - is like a gun sparrowing. So it has the main applicability - air defense of the near zone, and it can still burn holes below the waterline of ships (and that is a rather dubious application, given modern methods of protection against flooding).
      In addition, the USSR has already done a lot of experimental lasers - they worked well, but the applicability did not go around.

        In FIAN them. Lebedev, an oxygen-iodine laser was developed back in Soviet times, implying its military use. The only problem here is that materials both absorb light and reflect it, and the atmosphere also scatters it. And that remaining part of the energy is no longer enough to melt / burn materials at a distance. Compare the laser energy at the peak - 300 KJ and the energy of a cannon projectile, for example MSTA-B, m ~ 43 kg, V = 810 v / c -> Ekin = 14106150J = 14MJ, an order of magnitude higher. The only thing that is attractive here is the speed this system can react to, although again, accumulating such an amount of energy for a second shot takes time.
        So, even more likely the scope of the lasers is not near air defense, but the glare of the enemy’s optical devices.

          There are options for the development of new, more refractory alloys and special evaporative coatings (a laser shooting this coating evaporates it by heating, gaining time for the rocket to escape from the impact). Modern ballistic missiles fly along a flat trajectory, unlike old missiles whose apogee was 1000 kilometers above the Earth, rockets with a flat apogee trajectory are much lower, therefore, the time spent outside the atmosphere is reduced, which increases the survival of the rocket (in dense layers of the atmosphere, the laser power is dissipated )

                      Well, for example, you are not allowed homosexuality, and this is very bad by Western standards. Even before the events in Ukraine, I read foreign media about Russia, then there was nothing much to write about our country, and almost every second article openly said that the law prohibiting the promotion of homosexuality is very bad. I wonder why Western media did not molest Israel or Saudi Arabia with this problem? The fact is that the so-called Western media must constantly write nasty things about Russia otherwise. Even when it’s good, it’s all the same to find nasty things and write. For example, the Sochi Olympics, it would seem that there are some disadvantages, but no, you need to take a picture of the door lock on your camera in the United States and put it on the Internet with the signature that it is in Russia. And so constantly. About how the Communists were persecuted in the USA in the 40s, I generally keep quiet; no one even stuttered about freedom of speech. Opengheimer was slandered for allegedly supporting the Communists by opposing nuclear weapons.

          In the laboratory, with a static target in a few seconds it’s possible. I was present during the experiment when, using a pulsed laser, with a power of 1000 W at the peak, they burned sealing wax, which is used at the post office. So from the moment the laser was turned on to the start of evaporation, it took up to 1 s. And how do you think it is possible to fix laser radiation at speeds of the order of 7 km / s, and even for a long time, and besides, with a rapid change in the angle of incidence / reflection?

          Excellent missile defense against countries with underdeveloped missile technology. For it is much easier to shoot down a satellite with a laser with missiles from the ground than a ground-based missile defense system, covered with additional air defense and medium / short-range missile defense systems. Of course, it is possible to cram a lot of "defender satellites" with anti-missile / anti-lasers into space, but this is massive, costly, and ineffective - for the same purposes with the same protection it is much easier and more efficient to use ground-based missile defense.

          PS: A plastic mirror - of course. Polished to mirror reflection titanium or some other metal is orders of magnitude heavier and more complicated. The main impact force of the laser is in heating, and therefore protection from the laser is much easier to come up with (refractory materials are already known very, very much) than from weapons that have kinetic impact force.

          Not everything is so simple. take an interest in how many megajoules per square meter the thermal protection of a heavy warhead takes. If you do not have time to burn a rocket in an active area, then get tired of swallowing dust, burning multiple warheads.
          in space, a few grams of air is enough to deploy a radio-opaque balloon around a warhead plus a hundred empty balls, how will you select targets?
          Shoot down everything, including false goals, not enough time or resources.
          False targets will start to lag, only when entering the atmosphere, remember what speed at this site at the warhead? Yes, she also forgot to maneuver.


          By the way, a laser starting somewhere with 10 kW per cm2 no longer burns. The main mechanism of destruction is the explosive evaporation of the upper layer of the target, and these pairs dispersed to kilometers per second destroy the remaining wall,

In addition, as far as I know, even just rotating the warhead around the axis prevents critical overheating of the skin ... And yes!

        As far as I know, tests of a laser gun based on a tank were carried out in the 70s. Bullshit consisted in the fact that the installation occupied the chassis of three tanks: 2 - generators, 1 - installation with a cooling system, and the effectiveness of combat use corresponded to the DShK machine gun ...

        As far as I know, field trials of laser systems were carried out in the 70s. This did not impress anyone: generators were mounted on 2 tanks, on the 3rd - the laser gun itself and the cooling system, while the combat effectiveness was comparable to the DShK machine gun, which was clearly not a channel ...
        By the way, the use of laser for manpower, as far as I know, is not so depressing. The fact is that a powerful laser beam causes explosive instantaneous evaporation of materials at the point of impact, i.e. the effect resembles a bursting bullet. The armor will not break, but in an unprotected body - it will not seem good ...

      A laser can fire a burst like a machine gun. Instead of cartridges in the tape -
      supercapacitors.
      Even on heavily armored targets not available to the laser, always
      sufficiently vulnerable points (sighting devices, etc.) which
      will be instantly and easily destroyed.

    Another SOI. They want Russia, as under Gorby, to get caught up in the next Manilovshchina. Lasers are needed, but for a powerful defense laser with the current development of science, so much energy is required that hair begins to grow on a bald head. There is one interesting source, although it is called a thermonuclear bomb. To them, the Americans, Svidomo handed over the Soviet laser along with the steamer, however, as they say, all the valuable parts from non-ferrous metal have already been recycled. Well, the amirikos really want to drag Russia into the race again. We must do as the Chinese do, bought a wheel and made the same, and then sold it to those who bought this wheel. As the GREAT aircraft designer said, “we will not catch up, we will go (or rush) to the cut” (Bartini Robert Ludwigovich), you have to be more cunning! In exactly the same way, the Americans want the introduction of RUSSIAN troops into Ukraine, so that we would pay all Svidomov's debts. XY NOT 80 XO?

    in order to get even an 75kW pulse at least 10 times, in addition to the laser, you also need to carry a truck with special batteries that can give peak discharge currents and do not collapse. And they can cost a cost comparable to a laser, or even more, plus they are very demanding on operating conditions (in particular on temperature). This greatly limits the use of this installation, it can not be put on an SUV, and it is very doubtful that it will succeed on a drone. Although, of course, getting a high-performance small-sized laser is an alarming bell for us.

          O.L .: What do you think of Alfred Koch's trip to Barbados?

          FBI: We are well aware of this journey, and we have the very letter that you hold in your hands. First, pay attention to where Alfred Koch worked in 1996: he was the deputy chairman of the Ministry of State Property and the right-hand man of the then vice-premier Anatoly Chubais. But it was precisely in January that Chubais had practically completed the privatization of Russian property and had already begun preparations for the presidential campaign of Boris Yeltsin. As we became aware, at the beginning of the 1996, Anatoly Borisovich urgently needed a mechanism for “withdrawing abroad” the billions received as a result of privatization, as well as “washing” some of them for further referral to Boris Yeltsin’s campaign. And of course, Bank of New York was an ideal option for Chubais.

          "Closed" report of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation on the results of the inspection of the State Property Committee for the period from 1992 to 1995:

          “Of particular concern is the seizure by foreign firms of controlling stakes in leading Russian defense industry enterprises and even entire industries. American and British firms acquired controlling stakes inMAPO MIG, Sukhoi Design Bureau, Design Bureau named after Yakovleva ”,“ Aviakompleks im. Ilyushin "," Design Bureau named. Antonova ”, producing complex systems and flight control systems for aircraft. The German company Simmens acquired more than 20% of the Kaluga Turbine Plant, which produces unique equipment for nuclear submarines.

          And how she sings .... you will hear:

              The leader of the nation responded in an interview ....
              During the “direct line”, Vladimir Putin announced that during the privatization of the 90s, “surrounded by Anatoly Borisovich (Chubais), as it turned out today, US CIA personnel worked as advisers. But the funniest thing is that when they returned to the USA they were attracted to court for the fact that, in violation of the laws of their country, they enriched themselves during privatization in the Russian Federation. And they did not have the right to do this as acting intelligence officers. Under the law, inside the USA they were forbidden to engage in any kind of commercial activity, but they could not resist - corruption, you know. ”

    I didn’t understand what kind of a laser it was, such an entire quantum one. There are carbon dioxide lasers, they have an efficiency of 40%. But they are the only ones. For all other active laser media, the quantum efficiency is from unity to hundredths of a percent. And there is nothing you can do with any engineering tricks, because nature has ordered it so. The substance is so arranged. Electrons do not want to jump either faster, or more economically, or more often, or even at the request of the Pentagon ensign.

And it does not get around, nor jump over. These are physical laws that are not canceled at the request of the bigwigs from the arms business.

    But if you clean the atmosphere with refreshing precipitation, warm to dryness, vacuum, ban smoking, picnics, car exhausts and spoil the air loudly, the beam will pass through the oil like a knife, but weakened by lack of funding.

    Here, many write not about the purpose of lasers. The main task of these lasers is to shoot down drones, cheap missiles, and mines. At a short distance. At a relatively far distance - illumination of the target, failure of optical instruments, etc. For these purposes, you do not need any excessive amount of energy that is generated on small devices. For example, a container based on a truck shot down mortar mines and drones. ABM, laser guns, machine guns, etc. - This is a distant future, and the tested products are suitable for use now, 5-10 years of testing and development and will be adopted as an indispensable element.

      In addition to the applications you have listed, there is also the interception of missiles BB and SAM. Such an installation
      can protect a military transport helicopter and aircraft from missile attacks.
      Advantage: strict machine, without human intervention. No shooters, etc.
      For installation on fighters, the defensive laser is still too heavy (large
      weight).

    No, it's all clear. The point is the absurdity of the figure. An energy source the size of a city thermal power station and a herd of trucks with service equipment there, is not the issue. With efficiency = 1, which is impossible in principle, but we will accept it, this means that 750 kW for each shot must be pumped in this head, and already here all the bikes about the reduced weight efficiency go into the category of jokes for advanced third-year students after the third pile. Moreover, without taking into account the cooling of the system, because it does not need it, just agreed to an efficiency of one.
    And since it is much smaller, then cooling becomes the dominant problem, even ahead of the problem of supplying the required power. This is why everything that at least managed to give a flash is on huge planes? Here for gas-dynamic lasers (they are one of the types of flowing CO2 lasers) - one of the engines and gives the right amount of gas at the right flow rate, another one works only for turbo-refrigerators, and then the plane is always on the brink of fire, and the laser is essentially not for which is not good. It does not knock anyone down and does not turn the tank into a pool of solidifying iron. So instead of a laser, it turns out a stove for 100500 lard bucks, in which, along with a laser, the dream of a laser gun burns out.

        the technological breakthrough of the Americans in the production of "stealth" was associated with the emigration to the USA of A. Ufimtseva, who was involved in the work on the creation of invisible people.
        For many years A. Ufimtsev did the same in the USSR. And not only him. According to Sergei Korotkov, chief designer of the P. Sukhoi Design Bureau, "there are a number of teams that, after his departure, dealt with this problem."

        Well, in the previous posts I was mistaken, not 750 kW at him, but only 300. Okay. So every second we swell in 2 cubic meters of something, per megawatt, or 10 MW of any pumping energy, just before the battery runs out? And not to the brainwash of a braggart? They didn’t give a damn about themselves and the General Atomic Device, better than the active zone of a nuclear reactor, so that 2 cubes of unknown secret stuff can withstand such a heat load without even plunging into the river even from the Danube, say.

    As far as the question was raised what will be the rocket from the laser, and whether it is worth wrapping it with foil or asbestos bandages, here is an example of how and what can happen. This is a small (20 W) medical continuous CO2 laser (radiation wavelength - 10,6 microns). It shoots through a telephoto lens, the focus area itself is about a inch from the device.
    Sorry, please for the chaos, this was not intended as a finished video, and was caused by about the same dispute on another site.
    If something is not clear - I will explain.
