Well, at least they found another use for it. Always gets me how so many robots and advanced weapons in the future are such horrible shots…they fire dozens of rounds and one just MIGHT hit the target. Total BS with a robot target acquisition system unless there is some kind of shield to deflect the shots.
“Experts behind the 1980s missile shield idea have helped to develop a laser that locks onto and kills airborne insects. It is thought the device, dubbed the ‘Weapon of Mosquito Destruction’ (WMD), could be used against mosquitoes, which kill almost one million people around the world every year by spreading malaria. The WMD laser works by detecting the audio frequency created by the beating of mosquito wings. A computer triggers the laser beam which burns the wings off the mosquito and kills it. The laser missile defence system was proposed in the 1980s to knock Soviet missiles from the skies with beams.’ – Source
