Air Force Seeks Anti-PEW-PEW Spray

In a recent request for proposals, the Air Force has asked for the development of an anti-laser spray or embeddable layer than can be retrofitted on equipment and prevent it from being damaged by pew-pews for up to five seconds.

The idea isn't to render the weapons "impervious" to ray gun blasts. The Air Force just wants the shield to delay the laser burning through a weapon's skin -- five seconds or so ought to do the job. The best way to make it happen, the service believes, is with "a thermal protection coating (e.g., spray-on) or a broadband reflector embedded layer on [the] munition['s] skin."

Basically, we want to be able to get a missile to target without being lasered out of the sky. After skimming over the request (okay, so I didn't actually read it), I quickly filed a proposal.

Two words: Duct to the muthaf***in' tape. Cash or Paypal preferred. Thank you.

CHA-CHING!

Note: The video just demonstrates how laser shoot downs work.

Thanks to Richie, who actually coined the term "anti-pew-pew-spray".
