These eggheads had assured us 20 years ago, that they already had this Technology. We gave them billions of dollars to advance the science, and all we saw was "Engineers" and "Eggheads" getting govt funding. Where did all that money go? To make Lucrative Lifelong careers for Engineering Companies contracting for those dollars. And the results 20 years later are: We are no closer to true SDI Technology than we were then. Like Cancer Research. They never find cures, but need more funding to keep the research going. Keep the Careers going. Shut down the funding to these scam outfits. Make Private Contractors SHOW their success, or refuse them more money.

It is typical for military technology to be well advanced beyond what the people generally know. The F-117 Stealth fighter is already considered obsolete. There has been speculation that the so-called "Aurora" project is already in operation. Aircraft with missile destroying lasers have been flying for years.
The Navy is working on insect sized flying cameras. Weapons that can be used for incapacitating whole armies for months through pain compliance (while not killing them), distributed from aircraft are being explored.

Publilus: Stop getting all your Matter-of-fact Technology Info from Popular Science. 60% of that stuff never gets made. It's a comic book for Geek Adults.
