India Developing Laser-Based Anti-Missile Systems

By Vivek Raghuvanshi

Indian scientists are developing laser-based anti-ballistic missile systems called Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs).Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), DEW weapons can kill incoming ballistic missiles by bombarding them with subatomic particles or electromagnetic waves. The weapons could intercept missiles soon after they were launched toward India.A DRDO scientist said laser-based weapons have been tested. One of these weapons is the air defense dazzler, which can engage enemy aircraft and helicopters at a range of 10 kilometers. This weapon will be ready for induction in two years.
