Israeli commercial air flight: now with lasers!

Frickin’ Lasers!

Just when you thought El Al couldn’t get any more hardcore…

“Dubbed the Sky Shield—no, not that Skyshield—this Multi-Spectral Infrared Countermeasure (MUSIC) system from Elbit first identifies incoming threats with an integrated thermal camera, then hits it with a fiber-laser based Directional InfraRed CounterMeasure (DIRCM) to deflect heat seeking anti-aircraft missiles.”
