Incorrect, the new Zumwalt class destroyers have nuclear power and are the ones designed to utilize DEW's.

The technology isn't native to the U.S. if I recall an earlier article. Meaning, it's probably only a matter of funding (given how much technology theft occurs) to create platforms armed with this device.
Zumwalt do not exist today therefore your argument is invalid.
If anything we probably will find these lasers on an aircraft carrier. Aircraft carrier are armed more heavily and have the power for a laser.

meh, call me when someone puts the 500 trillion watt laser at NIF on a battleship tongue.gif

Also the Enterprise will easy be able to power this.

I put very little thought into my vocabulary. You will have to take my word for it that that is what i meant to say.

Either way. great progress*serious*.....TOWARD UBER LASER GUN TOYS*jk*....

Amazing what they can do nowadays, can't wait to see where this goes.

As far as applications on a naval ship, they typically engage over the horizon, right? If you could scale and aim it properly it seems like it could potentially be ace for intercepting incoming missiles and aircraft.

I don't understand why people feel the necessity to be rude, particularly when they are also wrong.

The Zumwalt is presently being built. And it will be put into use by the time FEL mature and are developed.

And no, you clearly know nothing about the Navy if you think an aircraft carrier would have any more firepower on it than its own aircraft. Or that it could divert any more power to an FEL.

These would likely be installed in the CBG surrounding the carrier.

The real range calculation would be how far away is line of sight? Obviously this will loose alot of power if it is being fired though the water and into another ship. Which limits their range to the tens of miles as anti-ship. So these would most likely be used for an anti-missile defense and as an anti-aircraft weapon where their effective range would be incredibly longer.
