Plans to implement the demonstration firing missiles at U.S. Air Force this year by using the YAL-1A Airborne Laser Aircraft, has been prepared by Boeing Missile Defense Systems, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. The first firing using powerful laser energy was held at ground test at Edwards AFB, California, on November 24, 2008. During the test, the laser fired from the turret mounted on the nose of a Boeing B747-400F that has been modified heavily. Firing successfully destroyed a simulated target missile. Firing control system operated by the crew in the YAL-1A, which controls the beam to the target.
