Default Star Wars-Style Lasers Will Be on Fighter Jets in 2014

DARPA has a well-known fetish for taking ideas from science fiction movies and making them into reality. DARPA has taken a lead from Star Wars and I dare say more from Real Genius in designing, fitting and putting into practical application, liquid cooled lasers on fighter jets and bombers. Testing on the new technology begins next year. DARPA and General Atomics announced they finished working on the laser turrets in 2012, and will now start integrating them on bomber and combat planes, with a goal of starting to test the technology in 2014.
