It's technically not an EMP weapon, but a High Powered Microwave weapon. HPMs have a similar effect to EMP weapons, but are more directed and controlled. This is steered to specific target areas.

What about weapons which need to stay at certain temps to remain safe? This tech would disable the power and potentially stopping the equipment or process which keeps it at bay; this is a potentially dangerous prospect in terms of chemical or biological weapons.

Do you suppose that after this very fast one goes through and knocks it all out, that there might be a slower, more in-your-face version that loiters, has the same electronics package, and maintains network dominance?
Like an "territorial occupation" version, I guess.
