Mirrors to Redirect Mini Laser Weapons on Fighters for Vortex Airflows

Recently a new airborne laser system was announced to be put onto fighter jets, once this technology becomes more advanced we will no longer need missiles for air-to-air combat. The system, which will go onto a fighter jet would be called the; "HELLADS" or High Energy Liquid Laser Area Defense System, it is being tested now. It would be a system based on Israel's THEL system which is a mobile "Tactical High Energy Laser"

I propose we have a set of mirrors in front of the aircraft redirecting the high-energy laser beam to areas above and below the wings and airfoils. This would blast the air and/or create vortex's, which would enhance lift which would allow for mini-tornado sucking of air over the wing in critical high angle of attack positions. During the firing of the weapon the mirrors would be retracted back into the front of the fuselage on a pole protruding in the front of the aircraft similar to this pole on this Bell X-1 Aircraft:

On the front of the tip of the pole would be a fold out system, which would expand out like a cone similar to the catch nets used for aerial refueling. Inside the cone protected from the relative wind would be the mirrors for redirection of the lasers to points near the boundary layer of air above the wing. There would be a grid system on the mirror to makes sure the right amount of energy was directed by the onboard computer system connected to the pilot's input of the joy stick control. All this would synchronize with the amount of air needed to maintain airflow needed in the intakes for air and the thrust vectoring jets for stability. When not in use for evasive maneuvering the pole would retract into the nose of the aircraft.

We need an off shoot of this technology which is being tested by General Atomics and Lockheed to prove my concept will work. We can use redirected or reflected laser cannon beams to increase stability in transitional flight situations to prevent departure of the aircraft from flight, by changing the air around the airfoils and control surfaces, please be thinking here.
