Price tag of new navy laser system.

Laser beams to protect U.S. Navy from drones – CBS News.

 

Pretty crazy video/story.  The most interesting part about this was the claim the R&D only cost $40 million.  For something we have been researching since Reagon/’70s it doesn’t seem possible for it to have such a low price tag.

 

Here is some better information.  Engadget says the laser costs $32 million per unit.
