US ARMY builds Zeus like Lightning Bolt Weapon

quote:

The Laser-Induced Plasma Channel (LIPC) cannon is currently being tested at Picatinny Arsenal, a key US Army research complex in New Jersey.
"We never got tired of the lightning bolts zapping our simulated targets," says George Fischer, who heads the research team.

The charge is created by emitting a laser pulse that charges the air, and forms a hugely destructive bolt of lighting.

Since it's still a DARPA project, I'm sure they'll change the name. Why not email DARPA and suggest it?

Those guys are actually pretty cool, I presented a robot in one of their competitions once, we lost..but they were all really nice.
