According to Northrop Grumman, from 1996 to 2005, Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL) was developed as great war machine. THEL was created as a joint project between the United States and Israel. During this decade of development, the ground system destroyed 46 mortar rounds, rockets, and artillery that all of them were in the air.
The Magneto Hydrodynamic Explosive Munition (MAHEM) was announced in 2008. Although no updates have occurred for quite some time, the MAHEM page is still active on the DARPA website. DARPA has been working on hand held magnetic jet guns, this is being done under The Magneto Hydrodynamic Explosive Munition Program. It uses fragments and self-forging penetrators (SFP) which can be used to strike with great precision and these propelled objects have much higher EFJ velocity.
Space weapons are weapons used in space warfare. They include weapons that can attack space systems in orbit, attack targets on the earth from space or disable missiles traveling through space.
