Is there any information on the physics of the airborne laser testbed available?

Also, why is it 'airborne'? Is it referring to the laser? But aren't all lasers airborne?

Thanks x

Obviously, V_pino has mistaken "airborne" to mean that the laser propagates through air. The fact that it refers to the weapon being deployed from an aeroplane seems to have eluded him. Depending upon his age and education level, that might be an understandable error.

Quite right. Sometimes I overlook that possibility when the poster's spelling and grammar are good. :redface:
