MICROWAVE GENERATORS​

High power electromagnetic weapons transmit microwave energy to disturb the air targets with desired engagement power. İnitially, the air target is engaged by high power electromagnetic weapon. Any material conducting electricity at air target connects with microwave transmitted from the weapon and stimulates electron flow in the unit. Consequently, the target’s conductive materials act like little antennae, gathering the high power of the weapon and channel electron flow through the air platform. Then, transient and voltage currents generate specious signals that confuse the system and damage sensitive components.

Four missions can be carried out by high power electromagnetic weapons: upset, lockup, latch-up, and burnout. Upset is a temporary alteration sensor nodes, so the air target losses lock because of interference. Upset and lockup produce the comparable effects. However, in lockup, the effects of the weapon continue even after the signal is removed. The air target cannot operate until the system is rebooted. Latch-up overloads the system with microwave radiation and causes blowing of fuses or transistors on critical circuit boards of air targets. Burnout is the physical destruction by melting small wires or junction nodes. As a result of melting and fusing multiple wires, electrical arcing occur and damage the onboard electronics. Although burn out is more effective than upset, the energy requirements are tremendously different. Upset can be carried out with 0,1W or less while burnout requires ~100W of power.

High power electromagnetic weapons can reach vulnerable components of the target via targets sensors -antenna or seeker head-, or indirectly -the target's body-. The direct approach is called ‘front-door coupling,’ and the indirect is named ‘back-door coupling.’ If the target system’s receiver is operating in known frequency, same as the weapon, the front-door coupling is suggested. Since the target’s antenna is designed and tuned to pick up signals of known particular bandwidth, will be vulnerable to malicious signals. If the limiting devices protecting the receiver is not state-of-the-art and sufficient, it is possible to inflict damage to the electronic systems.

On the other hand, back-door coupling penetrates the skin of the target system inflicts damage on the target’s electronics. Once inside the target system microwaves generated by high power electromagnetic weapons cause drastic issues for the circuitry. However, penetrating through the target’s protective casing requires more power than front-door coupling.

At Belpico, we are developing microwave generators for future high power electromagnetic air defence systems. Microwave generators coupled with precision targeting can engage the targeted systems with remarkable accuracy; even targets are near friendly forces. Also, infinite magazine technology can fire as long as enough electricity is supplied. Another critical point, microwaves travel at the speed of light. The light speed travel provides an exceptional advantage in countering high-speed attacks as the system can engage various high-speed targets within a short period. As a result, microwave generators for future high power electromagnetic air defence systems are effective in countering high-speed, swarming, and salvo attacks. Furthermore, rapid engagement leaves little or no time for countermeasures. We regard our microwave generators are the future for next generation high power electromagnetic air defence systems.

DOE National Laboratories and Energy Organizations Will Explore Ways to Protect the Grid from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attacks and Geomagnetic Disturbances (GMD)


Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded $4 million for four projects focused on developing and deploying solutions to risks posed by intentional electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks and naturally occurring geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) events. Both events can significantly damage U.S. critical energy infrastructure, causing extended power outages, damaged pipelines, and other impacts to U.S. energy systems.

These awards support DOE’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) efforts to model, assess, and test EMP/GMD vulnerabilities and their estimated system impacts in partnership with four national laboratory-lead teams that include participation from: Sandia National Laboratories, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“It’s critical that we continue protecting and preparing the U.S. critical infrastructure against threats of EMP/GMD events,” said Puesh Kumar, CESER’s Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary. “With these partnerships and our ongoing work with the Electric Power Research Institute and Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council, we’re continuing to strengthen the U.S. energy sector from all hazards.”

With this award announcement, CESER is seeking to advance methods and tools to harden the energy sector’s resilience to EMP/GMD events.

Other partners include the Electric Power Research Institute, Texas A&M University, Air Force Research Laboratory, and the Western Area Power Administration. The selected teams are also enlisting the help of a number of utilities to provide guidance and promote validated technologies in unpaid advisory roles.

In addition to the lab call awards, CESER is engaged in a variety of EMP/GMD activities, including nine pilots to field deploy mitigation technologies.

AFAIK its weaponisation was found to be impractical at current stage of science and engg.

But it has found lot of useful application in other domains that need focused EM intensity.

Recharging time was a issue ,but other systems are in development ,also laser sources are being developed , things are taken with different routes with similar goal of hard kill (soft kill is in much advanced stage )
