10:20 AM THE POWER OF HIGH-POWERED MICROWAVES: WINNING THE BATTLES AND MINIMIZING HARM

  • Using systems such as the Active Denial System and the Counter-electronics High Powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project, or CHAMP, American forces are potentially able to eliminate threats from crowds, or harmful electronics, while saving civilian lives
  • Non-lethal weapons used on the battlefield can disperse enemy combatants, as well as limit the enemy’s use of technology
  • One option to eliminate enemy command and control is the CHAMP system. It uses high-peak power microwaves. The peak power lasts for less than half the time it takes to blink, but can disable or destroy electronic circuitry in that short time
