United States Navy tests world’s first Laser Weapons System
19 July 2017 Current Affairs: The United States Navy recently tested the world's first-ever active laser weapons system, which is now deployed and ready for war.

Each strike travels 50,000 times the speed of an incoming intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). 

In the test, the system was able to destroy a drone in flight and moving targets in the Persian Gulf. With its addition, USS Ponce becomes the first ship in the world to be deployed with such an advanced weapons system.
