The KALI (Kilo Ampere Linear Injector) is a linear electron accelerator being developed in India, by the Defence Research Development Organization (DRDO) and the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC).
The KALI is not a laser weapon as commonly believed. It emits powerful pulses of electrons (Relativistic Electron Beams- REB). Other components in the machine down the line convert the electron energy into EM Radiation, which can be adjusted to x-ray (as Flash X-Rays) or microwave (High Power Microwave) frequencies.
This has fueled hopes that the KALI could, one day be used in a High-Power Microwave gun, which could destroy incoming missiles and aircraft through soft-kill (destroying the electronic circuitry on the missile). However, weaponising such a system has many obstacles to overcome.
That video is of ADVANCED ANTI MISSILE LASER made by Lockheed Martin. And not Indian Kali which is not a laser based weapon system Or for that matter cannot be even called a weapon. KALI (Kilo Ampere Linear Injector) is a linear electron accelerator.Indian Secret Laser Weapon KALI in Action - Anti Missile System: .. long thought to be a dark project, a short prasar bharti video now shows indian progress in field of laser based air defence.
this is not official prasar bharti user name just some fanboy
Highly doubt the credibility of this video as its uploaded by Fake "Prasar Bharti"...

I read this line 8 years back. it means no progress have been made since then!The KALI-5000 was commissioned for use in late 2004.
However, weaponisation of the KALI will take some time. The system is still under development, and efforts are being made to make it more compact, as well as improve its recharge time, which, at the present, makes it only a single use system.
