Once the force fields were exclusively the domain of science fiction films. But it seems that this fiction of Boeing engineers came to his liking, as they have developed and patented a new technology to protect vehicles against explosions live ammunition. To be precise, direct shrapnel hit this method is unlikely to protect, but from the consequences of a collision with a shock wave from the explosion – may.

The technology described in the patent, it looks something like this: the explosion of a shell near the vehicle, equipped with a system of protection, it triggers the sensor accurately calculates the direction in which the explosion occurred, and the time it takes the blast wave to reach the vehicle. Next comes into play “arc generator”, created with the help of powerful lasers sort of force field. The resulting field is actually a zone of ionized air inside the bubble of plasma. This partly reflects the bubble, partly absorbed and partly reverses the direction of the blast wave.

All this sounds pretty incredible, but the fact remains that a patent exists and read it on the site of the US Patent Office. The inventor Brian Tillotson number of engineers working on the company Boeing. If the invention is really proves its performance, then using this technology can protect against explosions not only military trucks in the illustration in the patent, but also various buildings, ships and even airplanes.
