While the rest of the world marvels at the capabilities of drone technology, China has create an anti-drone laser that can shoot down drones with 100 percent accuracy.
This new anti-drone laser can shoot down a low flying drone within a two kilometer radius.
Developed by the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP), the laser was created to increase security measures during “major events in urban areas” and to keep unauthorized drones out of Chinese airspace.
According to the CAEP, the laser has the ability to shoot down small scale drones flying within an altitude of 500 meters and at a speed below 50 meters per second, with 100 percent accuracy.
The news comes as France is preparing to launch their own investigation into unidentified drones that were spotted flying over their nuclear facilities last month.
France and China are not alone on this anti-drone movement however, as apparently the US military has also been testing an anti-drone laser of their own.
