The weapon of the future: is a Russian combat laser capable of shooting down satellites?


Combat lasers, which the USA has been obsessed with since the last century, are no longer an attribute of science fiction films. So, today, Americans have two prototypes: ground, capable of shooting small drones at a distance of 1,6 km and ship, intercepting missiles of small and medium class, at a distance of up to 18 km.


According to the developers of "miracle weapons", in the future, when the latter goes into the series, it will be able to hit one target every 1,5 seconds. Moreover, one such shot will cost only $ 1. For comparison, one modern short-range anti-aircraft missile costs more than $ 1 million. However, today these are just promises.

At the same time, in Russia since 2017, the military operation of the latest Peresvet laser complex has been conducted. Despite strict secrecy, it is known that at the moment the pulse power reaches 3 MW, which is enough to destroy drones, missiles of any kind and satellites in low orbits. In the future, it is planned to increase capacity to 10 MW, which will even allow the interception of nuclear warheads.

The main feature of the domestic "weapon of the future" is a laser-laser reactor with direct fission fragmentation and unique technology addition of lasers with the formation of high-temperature plasma at a remote point calculated in advance. The latter allows firing regardless of climatic conditions.

It is worth noting that the “Relight” has already been put into service, and its mobility (mounted on the basis of the KamAZ chassis) allows you to form protective lines at any desired point. At the same time, in the event of a global war, our complex will be able to disable the GPS orbital grouping without problems, completely "blinding" a potential enemy. And this is a powerful argument!

    It is slowly becoming clear who "Peresvet" is. Only all the same is not clear. Is it imba or just a dazzler?

      It is slowly becoming clear who Peresvet

      And what is clear? What has become clearer? It looks like the same hyper-super-duper-duper weapon.

        What is not clear here? For example, if you put a piece of fat and a burner in the path of the beam, there will immediately be borsch! drinks

    Low-orbit satellites - this is from 160 km and a speed of 8 km / s. Those. It’s as if 10 times stronger and faster than Amer’s prototype.
    And all-weather. Moreover, the power is 3 MW. Not bad.
    But the money for a normal cartoon regretted.

    PS If there is such a prodigy against satellites, then for some reason there is no less powerful against drones.
    Well, they are just right now, everyone and there over 160 km, do not need to hammer ....

        Alas, right, there are no cartoons about Relight ...
        There are about missiles, but not about the laser ... Sadness, apparently the money has been optimized.

        It can be seen that the only thing that can appear on the video is to drive beautifully out of the car in nature ...
        Because no sight, no radar is observed nearby ...

          And it should not be observed. Relight is just a minor element of anti-aircraft defense, works in fastening with conventional air defense systems. No one will do special targeting systems for it. The Yankees have the same story, all that is needed, he receives from conventional detection and guidance systems.

      Yes, maybe there is already, at least such an option itself begs for use against UAVs, I really hope that this is understood in our Defense Ministry and in the military-industrial complex we are working on this !!!

    I saw almost everything, starting with a berdan, minus land mortars, and ending with ballistics, but I can’t imagine a laser in a rather compact version. Once, in the 80s of the last century, the USSR KChF had OS-90, and others, but it ended in nothing. Although I admit that Pizzeria Raisovich with his accomplices leaked the topic.

        You can put a minus even without reading, because you probably do not write more rubbish than you write here. Perhaps you are a beginner troll, or an intern.

      Laser pointers never seen?
      Now imagine that they were taken in pieces of 500 and focused at the same time at one point ..

      .. a unique laser addition technology with the formation of a high-temperature plasma at a remote point calculated in advance ..

      - (which was explained to you here).

      The topic was leaked by EB, when in 1990 he offered the amam joint work on our missile defense system based on plasmoids ... So there were always enough freaks in power. And today they are not extinct, you bastards!

    If you call the Iron Taz system, it will work like an iron basin, what did Peresvet not please you with?

    All more or less powerful lasers, with an output power of more than a megawatt, are gas. Bulky due to cooling systems and eating a burst of energy. In the mid-80s, everyone ran into solid-state packet lasers, fiber or crystal. It is not important, the principle is the same. But! It quickly became clear that they can work in narrow ranges and their power is limited by the natural strength characteristics of optical resonators. That is, they are not able to give out 10 MW. And they returned to the gas grandfathers. "Peresvet" in its design elegantly combines the idea of ​​packet lasers, pumping gas lasers with ionizing radiation and an atomic reactor as an energy source at the same time. Yes, it is larger than fiber-optic packet bags, but smaller than carbon dioxide gas. Is 3 megawatts a lot or a little? Not enough for a combat laser. 10 megawatts is an estimated lower threshold from which everything should start. More than acceptable for an experimental working sample. Considering that such lasers are used in the aerospace industry to cut 1,5 cm titanium sheets.

    If the Americans are obsessively broadcasting something, then one thing is clear, with this type of weaponry, thank God not all ..... Already where they did not install lasers .. If you start with Reagan, then to satellites and space shuttles, and on Boeing, and on ships ....

      Well said, let's check how it sounds in relation to the Russian Federation.

      If the Russians talk obsessively about something, but do not show, then one thing is clear, with this type of weaponry, not all thanks to God
