Breakthrough reported in Navy laser weapon technology- Video
A Navy crew might only have seconds to react to an incoming missile before it rips a hole into a ship.

Existing anti-missile systems include rapid-fire guns designed to shoot down missiles at close range.

But a reliable laser weapon could do the same job with higher precision, speed-of-light engagement and without running out of ammunition.

It's an idea that's been in development at the U.S. Office of Naval Research since the 1980s. The goal is to create a megawatt, or 1 million-watt, laser weapon.
