The Army is gearing up for a laser weapons Stryker shoot-off

The US Army is working overtime to slap two different 50-kilowatt laser weapons onto a pair of Stryker infantry fighting vehicles ahead of a shoot-off this coming spring, a major step forward for the service’s directed-energy ambitions.

The service announced last week that a unique Army-industry team is currently hard overtime in Huntsville, Alabama to outfit two of the armored vehicles with two distinct laser systems developed in a competition between defense contractors Northrop Grumman and Raytheon.

Once the two systems are integrated into their respective Strykers, the two vehicles will go head-to-head in a laser weapon shoot-off at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, sometime this spring, according to the Army.
