    US to test new microwave pulse missiles.

    US to test new Microwave missile that could 'fry North Korean nuclear weapons before they're even fired'

    New CHAMP technology could blow the controls to Kim Jong-un's missiles, making it impossible to activate them.

    Although CHAMP weapons are still being developed, their use was discussed by the White House at a meeting in August to thwart North Korean aggression, NBC News reports.

    CHAMPs can be attached to B-52 bombers to access enemy territory where they can then emit sharp pulses of microwave energy to disable electronic devices by scrambling their circuitry.

    Read the rest of this astounding story HERE




    Even although this sounds like science-fiction, it has been known that a pulse from a high energy/low yield atomic bomb will fry any electronics around the ground-zero of the explosion.

    I Hope that this is not what America is talking about.

    It's not an explosion like the EMP that comes from an atomic bomb, and it is not an explosion at all.

    It appears that this missile, or drone, sends out an EMP so powerful that any electronic circuitry aimed at is burned out and made useless.

    There is no guarantee that this weapon might be successful against electronically "hardened" targets.

    Thanks for that great link Zathrus.

    It fully explains what CHAMP missile technology is.

    I have often thought that if the police had the ability to send out a narrow pulse of EMP strength they could stop cars that they are chasing in their tracks too.

    Mind you, I doubt if this ground-breaking technology would be allowed out into the public domain.

    They must have been holding that technology close to their chests for a very long time as this is the first I have heard about directed EMP weapons.

    If our enemies get to know about this technology and are able to mount it, they could use it to bring down civilian airliners as well as allied warcraft.

    Maybe this is still pure science fiction and it does not work at all.

    The definition of CHAMP microwave pulse weapons:

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 10 Dec 2017, 12:49 pm

    HERE is more on CHAMP weapons.

    This seems to explain that such CHAMP weapons can be fired as a tight focused beam in order to knock out any electronics in enemy high-tech war-munitions.

    If it works as well as they say it does this technology could be the ultimate defencive weapon in modern warfare and it could make ICBMs and other technology-based weapons obsolete.

    I just hope that the enemy do not get their hands on it as if they can deploy CHAMP against us our very advances weapons would suffer too.
