"In terms of distance and accuracy, lasers have a significant advantage over kinetic weapons. Itís nice to generate photons, but what good are they unless you can get them to a target? So the U.S. military can use our high-energy laser systems to optically track threats before defeating them with the laser. Itís a very accurate way of both tracking and defeating a threat."

I know that last 2 years I've been talking about lasers / LIDAR, as well as those crazy shiny skins that act as passive counter-measures (Think of them as RAM, but for light).

Well, the above is from Northrop Grumman. Using high powered lasers to TRACK and identify before engaging.
