"These initial flight tests validate the performance of our ABC turret design, which is an enabler for integrating high energy lasers on military aircraft" said Doug Graham, vice president of advanced programs, Strategic and Missile Defense Systems, Lockheed Martin Space Systems
In case he hadn't quite got his point across, he added for perspective: "So, right now the ABL would have to orbit inside the borders of Iran in order to be able to try and use its laser to shoot down that missile in the boost phase. And if you were to operationalise this you would be looking at 10 to 20 747s, at a billion and a half dollars apiece, and $100 million a year to operate. And there's nobody in uniform that I know who believes that this is a workable concept."
...Richard Hanna , U S Representative for New York's 22 nd Congressional District. "I look forward to continuing to work to facilitate the responsible development of innovative new technologies, like those that Logos Technologies is known for, and demonstrating the great opportunities that the Mohawk Valley can provide to small businesses."
Matthew Klunder. "It's absolutely critical that we get this out to sea with our Sailors for these trials, because this very affordable technology is going to change the way we fight and save lives." , according a US Navy press release in April this year
