Cruise missile disables electronics using microwaves

Engineers and designers from Boeing, Raytheon, and the Air Force Research Laboratory observed the test flight of a new type of cruise missile designed to disable electronic devices on October 16. The Boeing CHAMP, which stands for Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project, is a cruise missile that uses high powered microwaves to render electronics inoperable. The CHAMP missile aims a precise beam of high-powered microwaves at one or multiple targets as it flies. It can disable lights, computers and electrical systems in a building. It’s also capable of affecting an enemy’s defences by shutting down radar, tracking, and data systems. SOURCE: Gizmag, AOL, Boeing
