Zapping things from the sky: Airborne Boeing laser blasts ground target | NetworkWorld.com Community

The Boeing Advanced Tactical Laser recently destroyed its first ground target on the White Sands Missile Range, with a five second burst peaking at 10W output.

Now while the article deals mainly with the military applications, there's a good deal of technical info to be found as well, such as the output of the finished system, beam steering speeds, beam generation, etc.

Enjoy :)
