Re: Army creates new lightning weapon!!!!
Today's military lasers can blind spy satellites or burn enemy vehicles, but tomorrow's could guide lightning bolts to strike and destroy battlefield targets.

A U.S. Army lab is testing how lasers can create an energized plasma channel in the air an invisible pathway for electricity to follow. The laser-guided lightning weapon could precisely hit targets such as enemy tanks or unexploded roadside bombs, because such targets represent better conductors for electricity than the ground.

"We never got tired of the lightning bolts zapping our simulated (targets)," said George Fischer, lead scientist on the project at the U.S. Army's Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey.

This is good news. This is simply another weapon that we can use to ensure that modern civilized human society can continue, in the face of radical Islamist's with 8th century mentality wanting to take over the world.

Old news.

They have been working on the laser to ionize the air and send stun voltage behind it for awhile now.

OLD news. was demonstrated in San Diego as a method of stopping cars (persuit). A pair of UV lasers established 2 "wires" down which a capacitor was discharged. The EMP through the car body induced enough noise to upset the computer controlling motor functions.
A smaller version would work as a taser. No wires to break or miss.
Pretty kool technology

Re: Army creates new lightning weapon!!!!
If they can guide electrical energy onto a target, then SURELYA THAT MEANS the target could be a big battery therefore they can harness free electricity. But obviously they will make up some claim of why this doesnt work. Oh and this is 20 yr old tech anyway

HOW ABOUT USE THIS TECH TO POWER A CITY!?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5614446


That would be cool, if you would be so kind as to provide a way to store this energy in this little time?
There aren't big enough batteries let alone capacitors to get the energy regulated and put into the "battery"
But if you know a way PM me, I won't tell anyone else (but I'll put it to paper and sell it right away ;)

Re: Army creates new lightning weapon!!!!
I live near Picatinny and there is an article that said they have worked on plasma for a decade or so BTW what about. Nicola Tesla he had this technology and more in the early 1900's as a matter of fact the US military wanted him cor some time and when he died in NyC , guess who was there .......... Much of his information , writings and journals were missing !
