Laser weapon systems are ready to stop drones in their tracks:

Lockheed Martin breakthroughs are boosting the performance of laser weapon systems for ground, air and sea platforms while shrinking their size, weight and power consumption. This includes spectral beam combining, adaptive optics, precision pointing, line-of sight stabilization and air-flow control. We have showcased many of these technologies in our 10-kilowatt prototype system, which has defeated small airborne and sea-based targets, and our 30-kilowatt test bed system, which has disabled a stationary truck target. Both systems use the same proven system architecture and beam control technology. This technology uses low-power lasers, sensors, lenses, mirrors and software algorithms to locate the target and then focus and point the laser beam on the target. The 30-kilowatt test bed uses our best-of-breed fiber laser solution. It provides the highest efficiency available i...
