CowboyRobot writes: "The US Navy is months away from requesting bids from contractors to construct a laser weapon for its ships, now that the technology is feasible. "The key point came last April, when the Navy put a test laser firing a (relatively weak) 15-kilowatt beam aboard a decommissioned destroyer... the Martime Laser Demonstrator cut through choppy California waters, an overcast sky and salty sea air to burn through the outboard engine of a moving motorboat a mile away.""
