A Navy ship recently turned its laser weapon system to the skies to take out a drone flying nearby as the service looks to counter aerial threats at sea.

The amphibious transport dock ship Portland "successfully disabled an unmanned aerial vehicle" while it was in flight during a May 16 test at sea, the Navy announced in a news release. Video footage of the test appears to show the drone on fire before it suddenly disappears. https://news.yahoo.com/amphibious-ship-obliterates-drone-laser-175128368.html
