It's not that using high-powered lasers to drop incoming missiles is anything new, and was achieved by Boeing with a nine-year Air Force project that was canceled in 2011.

Success? Hmmmmmmmmm. Better kill that project.

Super! Turn it on incoming troops. Melt a few and the rest will get the message.

Practical battlefield laser weapons are still some years away from production and deployment. Aside from the limited case of population and area defense for the Israel, the energy and equipment requirements for high energy lasers make defensive naval use the most likely venue for large scale use.

Called ADAM, the small white trailer with the big laser takes its cue from radar blanketing the area three miles out. The radar has already kicked the laser awake when the guys on watch saw the flash. By the time they're diving for cover and warning their buddies, the ADAM has locked onto the rocket and is burning it out of the sky from over a mile away.

Yeah, with a max range of 2 klicks, you're going to need a lot of small white trailers for coverage - PROFIT!

Iron Dome, already 70km. interception range.

After keeping everyone from getting blown up, ADAM would then afford troops the time to coordinate their counter-attack where even more lives would be saved.

Well, save lives, except for the bad guys. Bada ping!
