China develops laser defense system, capable of targeting small-scale drones

-

BEIJING, China: China has developed a laser defense system which is capable of destroying small-scale drones flying within an altitude of 500-m and at a speed below 50m/s, the Chinese official Xinhua news agency reported.

In a statement, the China Academy of Engineering Physics – one of the system’s co-developers – said that the system can shoot down small aircraft within a two-kilometer (1.2-mile) radius and can do so within five seconds of locating its target.

The academy said that this indigenously developed laser system which will either be installed or transported in vehicles is expected to play a key role in ensuring security during major events in urban areas.
