Mobile military laser system from Boeing

    In the fourth quarter of 2011, based on the US White Sands missile forces in New Mexico, full-scale tests of the HEL TD (Hight Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator), a mobile military laser system, will be held. The manufacturer of the new high-tech weapons is a division of Boeing Defense, Space & Security . Technically, HEL TD is a system of mirrors, high-speed processors and optical sensors, and externally the installation is mounted on military four-axle trucks (Oshkosh Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck).

    In fact, HEL TD is a large laser emitter that can rotate 360 ​​degrees and shoot with an optical laser. Boeing says that as part of its upcoming tests, it’s up to the system to detect, capture, and track moving targets.
