Lockheed Martin has already delivered the completed AHEL laser to the Air Force, which will be tested with the AC-130J Ghostrider. The United States Air Force has long been working to make laser weapons a standard part of aircraft weaponry, and Lockheed Martin has been awarded a five-year contract in July to further develop, test and demonstrate the AHEL (airborne high energy laser) system to help achieve this.
