TOUCHBACK: After announcing plans to deploy a laser weapons system on warships, the Navy says it will start testing the technology aboard the USS Ponce sometime this Summer. The news also comes as testing on an electromagnetic railgun has progressed to a point where onboard testing of the weapon is estimated to be two years away. Both weapons are being designed to save the Navy money, because they both run on electricity, which is far less expensive than the ammunition used on warships today.
