Boeing Has Perfected A Missile That Wipes Out Electronics And Leaves Everything Else Intact

While the U.S. geared up for the second presidential debate last Tuesday, an unoccupied building sat pulsing with computers, electronic surveillance, and security systems in the Utah high desert.
The unoccupied site was awaiting the test of a weapon the Pentagon requested four years ago to the day on 16 October, 2008. The Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), led by Boeing's Phantom works, promised to change the face of contemporary warfare, and its test was a complete success.
CHAMP flew over the Utah Test and Training Range last Tuesday, discharging a burst of High Power Microwaves onto the test site and brought down the compound's entire spectrum of electronic systems without producing any other damage at all. Even the camera recording the test was shut down.
Struggling to contain his enthusiasm Boeing's Keith Coleman says, "We hit every target we wanted to. Today we made science fiction into science fact."
Coleman spoke from a Boeing video (below) that shows the results of the test, inside the computer filled building. Flying over the largest testing range in the country, CHAMPS took out seven different targets before self-destructing over empty desert.
While James Dodd, VP of Advanced Boeing Aircraft says he hopes to implement the CHAMP sooner rather than later, it's just one weapon in a growing arsenal meant to take down increasingly sophisticated foreign radar systems.
Passive radar is being heavily marketed abroad as the system to use if a country wants to identify U.S. stealth planes including the forthcoming F-35. The passive system evaluates a wide spectrum

Odungo will sell it to Iran for more campaign contributions
So, instead of nuking ourselves back into the stone age, we’ll zap ourselves back into the stone age by making all our technology unusable.
Artificial EMP, bur on a smaller scale, not horizon-to-horizon.
Bump for later read
Too late... the chicoms are already working on their copy.
I don’t think it could be used in very many places...Iran, North Korea, Libya... ;-)
You already beat me to it. I would have remarked that some occupant of the W.H. would give it to our enemies.
> Odungo will sell it to Iran for more campaign contributions
In the spirit of Ted Hall, the Rosenbergs and Bill Clinton, it’s not fair that the US should have a monopoly on advanced military technology. Obama has already fedexed the blueprints to Putin and whatever conniving runt runs China these days.
Good thing my vault uses valves in its water chip.
It is just a matter of time before we return to the policies of 200 years ago.
Thank you, Mr. President.
Ok so nnow we have the weapon, how about the anti weapon so we can protect ourselves when the enemy eventually gets this same capability?
Kiss your radar goodbye, Sparky.
Tubes are impervious to EMP. Only solid state devices can be destroyed......................
The Clintons will sell it to them.
Hang on to those bicycles, folks...and those pre-electronic autos.

EMP writ small?
