Germany creates 'Sky Guard' high-energy laser weapon shocked the world

Germany has traditional advantages in weapon manufacturing, and at the same time it has a lot of technological accumulation in frontier weapon development, such as high-energy laser weapons. Recently, Rheinmetall has tested a new laser weapon Sky GuardAt the same time, Sky Guard' is also one of the most powerful laser weapons. Next, OFweek Laser Network will take you to appreciate the demeanor of Sky Guardian, and will also present new developments in the development of laser weapons in various countries.   At present, high-energy laser weapons are attracting strong attention from the military of various countries, and many countries are developing and producing high-energy lasers on a large scale. Laser weapon (LaserWeapon) is a directed energy weapon that uses a laser beam emitted in a certain direction to attack a target. It has excellent performance such as fast, flexible, precise and anti-electromagnetic interference. It can play a unique role in photoelectric countermeasures, air defense and strategic defense. . It is divided into tactical laser weapons and strategic laser weapons. It will be a conventional deterrent. Because the speed of laser weapons is the speed of light, they generally do not need to be advanced when they are used. However, laser weapons are not popular because they are easily affected by the weather.  Laser weapon is a kind of ray weapon, there are beam weapons and weapons that use coherent and incoherent light sources. The killing factor of laser weapons is high-energy directional electromagnetic radiation produced by various lasers. The results of combat use of laser radiation streams of different densities (simply speaking, different types of laser weapons) are different: either temporarily blinding the enemy’s optoelectronic equipment or human visual organs, or against missiles, aircraft, and armored combat vehicles. Wait for the target to cause mechanical damage (destroy). One of the main shortcomings of laser weapons is the linearity of their action u0026mdash;u0026mdash; any type of laser weapon can only be used on targets within direct sight. If the target is located on the side of the mountainu0026rdquo; or below the horizon, it is impossible to destroy it with a laser cannon or similar weapons, and the laser beam must be re-reflected. To obtain a high-power laser beam, there must be a corresponding high-power generating device, and under the current scientific and technological conditions, a compact high-power generating device cannot be obtained. Therefore, the current combat lasers are only regarded as weapons for space warfare for the time being (blind optical equipment, including optical equipment deployed on satellites, or with the help of combat lasers deployed on combat orbital stations or aircraft dedicated to this purpose. Destroy air and ground targets). In the international military world, Rheinmetall has developed a unique RH120 smoothbore gun. But recently, this arms dealer has taken a slant and developed a laser weapon for hitting planes. In early January of this year, the company conducted a number of tests on the self-developed high-energy laser weapon system Sky Guard, and successfully shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle flying at a speed of 50 meters per second about 3.2 kilometers away, shocking the world. The Sky Guard with a power of 50 kilowatts' is one of the most powerful laser weapons in the world so far.
