Ok, what are the details on that laser? Like strength and range, because holy poo poo I can’t believe did we actually do it? Gundams are right around the corner boys.

Navy open source reporting is that this demonstrator is aimed at a 150 kw demonstrator weapon. Not clear what the strength of the test shot was. The previous iteration was a 30 kw demonstrator.

quote:

Portland, a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, was tapped in 2018 to be the first ship to test the Solid State Laser – Technology Maturation (SSL-TM) Laser Weapon System Demonstrator (LWSD) MK 2 MOD 0 at sea. This second iteration of SSL-TM, which is ultimately expected to become a 150-kilowatt laser weapon, draws from lessons learned from Office of Naval Research (ONR) demonstrations and testing that date back to 2011. The original 30-kilowatt Laser Weapon System (LaWS) was used by interim afloat forward staging base USS Ponce (AFSB(I)-15) in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations from 2014 to 2017 to gather data and lessons learned on how the system performed in an operational setting.

This follow-on SSL-TM has challenged scientists to made advances in areas like the beam director and spectral beam combining, which takes many lasers of different wave lengths and creates a more powerful beam by “ganging them up,” Frank Peterkin, the Navy’s senior technologist for directed energy, told USNI News last year.

Given Trump wants to resume nuclear testing, won't need a painting soon.

Not a painting, it is a lamp that looks like it will be cool for the first couple hours and a nightmare to dust/clean/whatever until it gets thrown out.

Sure you could pay over $100 for that lamp. Or you can get the exact same one for super cheap and maybe you’ll see it in two months. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/40010...603439f5&is_c=Y

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?
