technology of Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) and Electromagnetic Bombs
(E-bombs) will revolutionise many aspects of modern warfare. While
immature, this technology will permit new offensive and defensive
techniques against a wide range of targets. These non-nuclear weapons
provide tactical options which did not exist decades ago, when nuclear
High-altitude Electro Magnetic Pulse (HEMP) weapons were the principal
capability in this domain.
This website will post a selection of relevant articles and papers.

The development of
E-bomb warheads, especially using HPM emitters, will permit their
integration in a wide range of weapons. To date bombs, cruise missiles
and artillery rounds have been proposed for the delivery of such
devices. Depicted are some representative non-Western delivery systems
and the most likely warhead packaging we can expect to observe (C.
