Military Spy Laser is still a concept, but in near 50 years, this concept can become a reality. Everything depends on the research so far.
The idea of the Military Spy Laser is to turn the Earth’s atmosphere into a giant magnifying glass. It sounds like a science fiction movie but is definitely possible, scientists say. But according to the engineers, this could become a reality in next 50 to 60 years minimum and right now, it’s not possible. The whole idea of Military Spy Laser is put forward by the BAE Systems. According to their concept, they want to create structures in the Earth’s atmosphere with similar properties to lenses. This could definitely help to spy on enemies as well as act as form a ‘deflector shield’ to protect aircraft from enemy attacks.
The developing firm, BAE has named the system as a Laser Developed Atmospheric Lens (LDAL). It is basically a device which will use a directed energy laser alongside a lens system. But it is still a concept but LDAL is totally based on known science so far, and BAE Systems promises to create one by the end of 2067.
Professor Nick Colosimo, BAE Systems’ Futurist and Technologist, said, in his press statement, “Working with some of the best scientific minds in the UK we’re able to incorporate emerging and disruptive technologies and evolve the landscape of potential military technologies in ways that, five or ten years ago, many would never have dreamed possible.”
The entire concept of Military Spy Laser is based on the two main existing effects of nature – the reflective properties of the ionosphere, and desert mirages or illusions. While the ionosphere is a naturally occurring third layer in the Earth’s atmosphere after troposphere and the stratosphere that appears at about 40 miles in altitude the desert mirages is also a common scientific effect of nature. Ionosphere reflects radio waves and allows people to tune into radio stations that are thousands of miles away. Radio signals often bounce off the ionosphere and travel very long distances through the air and over the Earth’s surface. And BAE has planned to use this effect with desert mirages to build up Military Spy Laser.
