Boeing test out CHAMPS, a microwave missile capable of disabling electricity to multiple targets

Boeing testing out new microwave missile, can take down our electronics

Better slap that tin foil hat not only on yourself, but any electrically-powered devices you may own, which would be a lot because Boeing are working on something that could take them all out in a single shot.




Boeing are working on a newly tested Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) that its missile can slams targets underneath with microwaves that can take down computers, power systems and pretty much anything electrical.


CHAMP can deliver a payload that is invisible, and the prototype is currently capable of targeting multiple individual buildings all without detonating anything, or hurting civilians with it's "blast". Boeing will develop CHAMP in a multi-year program, and currently has no guarantees this will end up as a product for the military's use. Imagine what these things could do if they were reverse-engineered. Worse, imagine what they could do if they were hacked.
