Army produces laser weapon demonstrator

The weapon -- the High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator -- is a product of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command - Technical Center, at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., and has been tested at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

The laser is a 10-kilowatt weapon mounted on a Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck A4 platform. Once it locks onto a target, the laser beam literally fries it.
