The laser system used on the dune buggy was created by Raytheon and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory under a $2 million contract. Besides all-terrain vehicles, Raytheon’s technology can also be equipped by attack helicopters like the AH-64 Apache.

“The speed and low cost per engagement of directed energy is revolutionary in protecting our troops against drones,” said Dr. Thomas Bussing, Raytheon Advanced Missile Systems vice president. “We have spent decades perfecting the high-power microwave system, which may soon give our military a significant advantage against this proliferating threat.”

Even though the laser system was developed primarily to protect U.S. troops against UAVs, this technology can be used in areas other than the battlefield. Sport stadiums or public events with large crowds can benefit with Raytheon’s proven technology.
