U.S. FAA reviews FedEx proposal to install A321 laser-based missile-defense system




By David Shepardson and Tim Hepher
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Friday it is proposing conditions that would allow FedEx to install a laser-based missile-defense on Airbus A321-200 airplanes.
Delivery company FedEx Corp in October 2019 applied for approval to use a feature that emits infrared laser energy outside the aircraft as a countermeasure against heat-seeking missiles, the FAA disclosed in a document.

A FedEx spokeswoman declined immediate comment about whether it is still pursuing approval for the application. FedEx does not currently operate any Airbus 321 planes.

That’s unsettling news, but who knows when some pack of Islamist creeps will get some Russian misses, and shoot down some planes.
