Doesn't sound like the laser has been installed yet. However thought you all might be interested.

Installed, as in on the aircraft and not a test rig? My understanding was that the recent firing was from the mockup fuselage.

Press release on the recent firing indicates it was from the test facility vs actual aircraft...
