The ATL system is a chemical oxygen-iodine laser (coil) being developed by Boeing for the US Department of Defense and will be used to destroy, damage or disable targets with little to no collateral damage--quite unlike Boeing's Airborne Laser (ABL), which is a high-energy coil weapon capable of destroying ballistic missiles in the boost phase.
