Russia will develop space-based laser weapons Unlike the United States, Russia is developing space based air defense and anti missile laser weapon.According to the Russian "Expert" magazine, Chief of Russian armed forces Baluyevsky Yuri claimed that Russia is fighting against the United States at the fields of high powered laser weapons. These words were a response to a statement made by the director of the the US Navy's research office, Ma Hugh Karen who left a provocation a few days ago. The latter said that the burning laser weapon installed on the warship have made a satisfactory performance within 4 months of test. It is said that the U.S. Navy's new laser weapon can destroy the boat or uav easily. However, at the field of nuclear physics, there is no one who can solve the problem of the laser beam scattering at the earth's atmosphere,based on that,the current high powered laser system can only used under a nice day when there is blank of the sky (less clouds and low humidity conditions ). However, at the current stage of laser technology, the strategic of using laser weapon at space is also realistic.Development of military laser pointer However,this work does not stopped completely.although the Americans did not obtaining the scheduled results, but the use of laser technical has made a great progress.The Pentagon representative Hugh Karen praised for the sea-based burning laser device's performance of last 4 months. In response to American achievement on laser weapon, Baluyevsky that the research of military laser technology will be the next race for many coutries since its powerful performance. Military expert Igor Korotchenko added that the United States is developing a new physical principle of weapons, and these tests have showed that the United States will deploy these burning laser weapons at warships vehicle.The Russian defense ministry pay more attention to space-based lasers, rather than the sea based laser. Star War effetsIn a response to the "Star Wars", Soviet Union joined the technical competition quickly in a secret town called "Rainbow" where has a secret Institute for the development of 200mw laser pointer weapons. Unfortunately, this plan was terminated since they did not got the required laser beam power and intensity ratio.Nowadays, the power of laser radiation is greatly improved, but the problem of scattering still exist. Only under a vacuum circumstance can laser weapon destroy targets at any distance or directions.The "Star Wars" (announced at 1983) program determine to develop a system based on a 300mw green laser radiation. In the field of directed energy weapons, high power lasers (including nuclear pumped laser particle accelerator, basic roentgen) and electromagnetic radiation generator were the main character.The spcace station equipped with laser weapons would be used for a extremly long time in orbit. In the case of a high powered burning laser deployed on the ground, it is planned to use a large mirror mounted on the space platform to guide the laser beam aimed at the intercontinental ballistic missile warhead.Soviet Union's response
The USA research of air based laser weapon lasted for nearly 30 years. In February 2010, the US military destroyed a ballistic missile successfully with a liquid fuel at a maximum laser power. But the Committee concluded that this laser weapon device did not reach a predetermined parameter, so the plan was suspended in 2011.
