  • January 12, 2012 -- Air Force eyes fuselage-mounted laser weapons to defend bombers from missiles and aircraft
    Albuquerque, N.M., 12 Jan. 2011. U.S. Air Force researchers are working with high-energy laser weapons experts at TAU Technologies LLC in Albuquerque, N.M., to develop technologies that eventually may lead to 100-kilowatt laser weapons mounted to the skin of jet bombers and other combat aircraft to defend against missiles, unmanned combat aircraft (UCAV), enemy jet fighters, and other threats.
  • February 17, 2012 -- Pentagon proposes deep cuts in lasers and directed-energy weapons work in 2013 budget
    WASHINGTON, 17 Feb. 2012. Officials of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) are planning serious cuts in military lasers and directed-energy weapons work next year, with the Pentagon's proposed spending for lasers and directed-energy weapons of $244.28 million. Although it might seem lime a substantial amount, proposed fiscal 2013 spending is down 33.23 percent from current-year levels of $365.88 million, and down 44.7 percent from 2011 levels of $441.48 million.
  • June 6, 2012 -- Communicating at the speed of light: laser technology enables high-bandwidth communication and imagery
    SPECIAL REPORT, 6 June 2012. When a mortar shell is falling from the sky, warfighters need precise sensors that work at the speed of light; when warfighters need to remove a mortar from the sky, they need communications that work at the speed of light. Until it’s been proven otherwise, light speed is still the fastest anything can travel, and that’s why lasers are so important for communications and sensing in mortar defense and other crucial aerospace and defense applications.
