[Instant News/Comprehensive Report]The U.S. Air Force recently issued a press release stating that in response to the increasing threat of enemy drone groups and other aerial threats, the U.S. Army will cooperate with the Air Force to launch the “Tactical High Energy Mission Response Aircraft” in 2024. High-power Operational Responder, THOR Thor) field test, as a new defense weapon to prevent bases from being attacked by drones.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, the research and development of “Sol” is led by the U.S. Air Force’s Strategic Development Program and Experimentation Office (SDPE). It can emit short pulses of high-power microwaves, and is a prototype directed energy weapon within the range of “one-click sweep”. The electronic equipment in the drone can be paralyzed, and through special design, it can fight against multiple targets at once.

U.S. Army General Neil Thurgood said, “The Army needs to have multiple ways to provide directional energy capabilities for hierarchical defense. High-power lasers can attack one target at a time, but high-power microwaves can strike a group of targets at a time. This is why we are pursuing these two technologies.”

Kelly Hammett, director of research and development of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) energy guidance system, said that the U.S. Army intends to participate in the program as a partner from October and start field trials in 2024. The fastest deployment time will have to wait. There will be no chance until 2026.

He said, “They hope to provide enough systems for comprehensive weapons inspection by 2024.” In addition, he pointed out that “They will integrate high-power lasers and high-power microwaves into the same unit. deploy”.
