Boeing Successfully Conducts Test of EMP Device
Could be Game-Changer in Confrontation With Iran
Boeing, the US-based aircraft manufacturer which is also the third largest defense contractor in the world, has successfully carried out a test of an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) device over a military compound in Utah. The device is said to be a possible game-changer in any military confrontation with Iran.
An electromagnetic pulse is an intense burst of gamma energy that reacts with the Earth’s magnetic field to produce a powerful current. This sets off a shockwave with the potential to “fry” electronic devices and circuits.
The test was conducted some months ago, but was largely ignored by the press as VR-Zone noted in a report on the story.
The test was codenamed CHAMP — Counter-Electronics High Power Advanced Missile Project and was the first time a real EMP missile has been tested with positive real world results.
As Arutz Sheva noted, The UK’s Sunday Times wrote of possible Israeli plans to use the technology against Iran.
