Electromagnetic Pulse Warfare

 

Primary Weapon

"E-Bomb"
 
An E-Bomb is “an electromagnetic bomb that produces a high-power flash of radio waves or microwaves that destroys any delicate electronic circuitry it hits. It causes mass disruption without destroying life or property. An e-bomb could freeze transportation systems, wreck communication systems, and destroy computer networks. The U.S. will begin production next year on a sophisticated version but the cost to a terrorist for an e-bomb with no bells or whistles: an estimated $400.” (10)
 
“This type of electromagnetic pulse weapon is a warhead that, when exploded, emits a high-energy pulse that will fuse electrical equipment within range. E-bombs can unleash in a flash as much electrical power - 2 billion watts or more - as the Hoover Dam generates in 24 hours.” (11)
