WARPLANE WEAPONS: American Aircraft Get Death Rays

July 27, 2005: Quietly, and without much fanfare, the U.S. Air Force has been equipping some of its fighters with electronic ray type weapons. Not quite the “death ray” of science fiction fame, but an electronic ray type weapon none the less. In this case, the weapon uses the high-powered microwave (HPM) effects found in Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar technology.

I posted a reply in a thread a while back from an AWST article. The AF is also looking at electronic attack from the E-10 aircraft as well using its radar. Its an amazing capacity. This radar is really something else. It can also jam (albiet along a very narrow range) and because the dish is fixed, it actually decreases the planes RCS a bit to boot!
