European Hub for Anti-Drone Laser Weaponry Will Be Based in Scotland

A European hub for high-energy laser weaponry is to be based in Livingston, Scotland. Raytheon UK said the “advanced laser integration centre” would open next year and help meet the growing demand for laser weapons designed to destroy small attack drones.

Last year, Raytheon was awarded a demonstrator contract to provide a high-energy laser weapon system to the UK Ministry of Defence, to be installed on the UK Wolfhound land vehicle.
