Laser technology against drones

France has successfully tested an experimental laser weapon designed to destroy a flying drone, said Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly. The new technology could be used as part of security measures for the next Olympic Games, the RT agency reports.

Laser testing was conducted by the Directorate-General for Armaments (DGA) on Wednesday in Biscarrosse on the southwest Atlantic coast. The government wants to use experimental anti-drone technology as part of its security strategy for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Even in the Czech Republic, we deal with dangerous drones. Police will soon be given the power to shoot them down. An amendment to the Police Act, which is being addressed by the Chamber of Deputies, provides for this. Police officers will be able to shoot at drones in dangerous situations and will also have special pistols.
