Russia is developing a laser shield that will protect fighter aircraft from missile attacks. The aircraft carrying the laser system will neutralize the approaching missile. According to a statement made on the website of the Russian Academy of Sciences, experts from the Russian Institute of General Physics have produced a generator that will enable the laser to neutralize missiles. According to the statement made on the site, the generator can send electromagnetic pulses to the target with very short laser waves of 200 mm in diameter. The website stated that this study is regarded as the most important scientific achievement of Russian scientists made in 2016.
