Most of us , as online researchers, have come across the now ‘infamous’ Air Force 2025 documents.
Air Force “Owning the Weather in 2025 : Weather as a force multiplier” document

The well known ‘Owning the weather by 2025’ documents from the military, which laid out future operational plans by the US Air Force, spelled out plans in the mid-1990’s forward to the year 2025.
The Air Force planned to ‘own’ directed energy weapons development, control the weather, and have it all functional before 2025.
Now, in late 2014, the USAF has set a new 30 year goal.
One of the top areas dominating the next 30 years of weapon systems is now disclosed. Directed Energy Weapons, high power microwaves, lasers, and other RF weapons (radio frequency / plasma).
The news release focuses on the current newly deployed LAWS laser system.
Quote the news release:
“The military has been using laser-guided missiles for years. Over the next three decades, the Air Force will attempt to integrate lasers themselves as a legitimate weapon.
In plain English, this means lasers.
The Navy has been working on the Laser Weapon System, or LAWS, per National Defense Magazine.
The system combines six lasers, which converge on one target. Last year, the system was installed on a battleship and tested on a flying drone. When its lasers converged, the drone burst into flames in mid-air, National Defense Magazine reports.
“In terms of power, the Marines want flaming balls of wreckage falling from the sky,” Lee Mastroianni, program manager for force protection in the Office of Naval Research’s expeditionary maneuver warfare and combating terrorism department, told National Defense Magazine. “That is our program goal.”
If you actually read the .pdf released by the Air Force, they don’t mention LAWS laser weapon at all, since the laser is currently deployed now, it’s not a new system to be explored.
quote the USAF:
“Directed Energy Exploiting directed energy technology will provide the opportunity to fundamentally alter operational concepts and support requirements.
As we seek flexibility in our weapons effects and the ability to operate in contested environments, directed energy weapons with deep magazines can alleviate the need for acquiring and transporting large stockpiles of munitions into the theater, while providing precise, responsive, and persistent effects.
In addition, classes of directed energy weapons can deliver temporary and reversible effects that offer more options to commanders in the field. ”
The yahoo article talks about lasers being used by the USAF, then brings up LAWS……. actually, the LAWS laser is a US Navy program run out of the DEWO (directed energy warfare office), placed on ships, and vehicles.
