north korea or iran? nah, that's not who these are for

The Daily MailEXCLUSIVE: U.S. Air Force has deployed 20 missiles that could zap the military electronics of North Korea or Iran with super powerful microwaves, rendering their military capabilities virtually useless with NO COLLATERAL DAMAGE

  • Known as the Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), the missiles were built by Boeing's Phantom Works for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
  • The microwave weapons can be launched into enemy airspace at low altitude and emit sharp pulses of high power microwave energy that disable any electronic devices targeted 
  • Mary Lou Robinson, the chief of the High Power Microwave Division of the Air Force Research Lab has confirmed to that the missiles are now operational and ready to take out any target
  • While North Korea or Iran may attempt to shield their equipment, U.S. officials doubt that would be effective against CHAMP.
  • The project has been advancing secretly ever since the Air Force successfully tested a missile equipped with high-powered microwave energy in 2012
