FedEx seeks anti-missile system for planes

Washington, Jan 15 (UNI) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the US has indicated that FedEx, an American transport, e-commerce and services conglomerate, has sought permission to add an anti-missile system in some of its cargo planes.
The FedEx missile-defence system directs infrared laser energy toward an incoming missile in an effort to interrupt its tracking of the aircraft's heat, CNN quoted the FAA as saying in a statement on Friday.
In 2003, a surface-to-air missile slammed into the left wing of an Airbus A330 just after takeoff from Baghdad but no harm had reported to crew members.
