The Navy Wants Anti-Drone Lasers On Trucks

April 17, 2015 - 10:55 -- Admin

The Navy is building a system of trucks that will fight drones with lasers, and they're advertising them with all the thrill and excitement of a second-quarter earnings report. The “Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy On-the-Move” weapons program, or GBAD for short, puts a laser on the back of a Humvee (or other light vehicle) and puts sensors on a couple of other Humvees. That way, when Marines drive into the battlefield, they can shoot down any cheap and hostile drones that may try to attack them.
