Unlike earlier generations of sheetfed laser cutters that can only feed sheets under the laser beam intermittently, the Spartanics Finecut Sheet Fed Laser Cutting Machine picks up sheets and feeds them so that the sheets are continuously moved to the proper position under the laser beam with no stopping or starting delays between sheets.
The countermeasures system is designed to protect C-17s, C-130s, and other large aircraft from infrared-guided surface-to-air missile threats by automatically detecting a missile launch, determining if it is a threat, and activating a high-intensity directed laser beam countermeasure system to track and defeat the threat.
