The Navy is building a system of trucks that will fight drones with lasers, and they’re advertising them with all the thrill and excitement of a second-quarter earnings report. The “Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy On-the-Move” weapons program, or GBAD for short, puts a laser on the back of a Humvee (or other light vehicle) and puts sensors on a couple of other Humvees. Why is the sea-focused Navy looking for a ground-based laser? The Office of Naval Research also directs the research of weapon systems for the Marine Corps, who tend to do most of their fighting on land. With GBAD, when Marines drive into the battlefield, they can shoot down any cheap and hostile drones that may try to attack them.
