Developed by the US Navy, the futuristic Laser Weapon System (LaWS) is a directed-energy weapon uses an infrared beam from a solid-state laser array which can be tuned to high output to destroy the target or low output to warn or cripple the sensors of a target. Scalable power levels allow it to be used on low-power to dazzle a person’s eye to non-lethally make them turn away from a threatening posture, and increase to 30,000 watts to fry sensors, burn out motors, and detonate explosive materials. Against a vital point on small UAVs, one can be shot down in as little as two seconds. When facing small boats, the laser would target a craft’s motor to disable it and make it “dead in the water,” then repeating this against others in rapid succession, requiring only a few seconds of firing per boat.
