And this isn't the same thing as khibiny.

CHAMP also isn't an EMP weapon, it's an HPM. Everyone claims it's an EMP, but it's not. HPMs are much easier, and can be targeted at specific buildings, instead of entire areas.

Khibiny is the equivalent of the AN/ALQ-165 jamming system used on the F-16. It's short range, and low powered because it's powered by on board systems.

I'm picturing a pack of Wildcat Drones running through the streets with head mounted emp weapons neutralizing cars and humans in droves before the Harvesters come in and start gathering up the prisoners.

They wouldn't affect people, unless you had a pacemaker or something electronic in your body.

-Good way to deflect jamming, to say the least..

the cook was told to shut off its sensors actually because they didnt want the Aircraft to glean any info from them. Its a HOAX that they were shut off by the russians.

Yup. Seen one of those with the stange pulsating green strobe. Flying low and slow....It's ours.

Probably it's based on vircator or maybe reditron oscillator, depending on what bandwidth they want/is operationally desired.

Curious this should be in an OP now...i'm sure i was reading a thread only last week where..shall we say, 'established ATS members' were claiming that EMP devices don't exist as they cannot work as they're claimed to work outside of a sci-fi movie.

Can't remember the thread, but it's interesting you'd post this now regarding the above.

this is a HPM weapon. btw.

And this particular weapon has been discussed before on ats. I think as far back as 2009. maybe farther.

CHAMP isn't an EMP, it's an HPM. There's a huge difference between the two.

I know there's a huge difference between a HPM and a LPM. I have what's marketed as a HPM but it never can defrost any of my frozen meals. Therefore I am a little bit skeptical of all these claims that HPM are the next big thing. 12 amps of power my ass.

Hmmm, wasn't there a story a few months back about a ship in the Black Sea taking a hit from a weapon like this?

Seven shots is an interesting number, it leaves me to wonder how precise the targetting system is and if a low level blast could significantly effect a living target. Perhaps not death, obviously, but a sort of neutralization or even "reprogramming"


A NAVY battleship recently parked in our port and gave tours for a few days. All the NAVY ships are equipped with a version of this weapon. Em deflection is visible on deck, as well.

This kind of weapon was originally labeled as non lethal, described as such by men such as Col. Alexander, for one….
It is sarcastic and misleading, as such weaponry can heat the body to a temp. that it can't survive.

I cant remember which plane has one but a few are also equiped with front and back lasers that can fire 360 degrees. Ill send the video if you would like to partake in the indulgence of engineering porn.

Yeah the navy tends to get tech a little faster than the rest cause of their experience, same with the marines, space soldiers, shadow CIA, ect, the shadows are quite wonderful people!

Its quite the old weapon these days, the only new thing is its on a #ing sexy drone!

Come to think of it, I seen a strobing light in the sky once and what looked like a laser firing from it, could it maybe have been a demonstration made too me? Vimana at the time? I dont think many craft had lasers in those days like they seem too now :l hm Green lasers dont make sense though unless it was ET craft, because our lasers even iron dome and the US navys are red....So HPM from a vimana?

LINK HPM


oordinated Army, Navy, Air Force and DNA HPM transition plans are focused on demonstrations of mission-oriented concepts: aircraft self protection, anti-ship missile defense, and counter munitions (EW Electronic Attack - degrade/neutralize enemy defenses); and lethal Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) and C2W/IW (Precision Force, MOUT, and IW). Potential Warfighter payoffs include generic protection against a wide variety of missile/munition threats (IR, EO, RF, laser-guided), improved effectiveness and lower attrition rates of friendly systems, and negation (permanent damage, long-term disruption, and temporary degradation) of enemy command, control, and general information systems. Finally, electronic protection techniques developed under the HPM program are being continuously transitioned to users in order to harden US systems against hostile HPM weapons or inadvertent EMI/EMC. Joint development and test projects demonstrate the maximization of investments to meet individual Service/Agency mission requirements.
