Guess the russians will be start frying things with this one.

Yet another Russian first. Amazing isnt it.

But then again, the US defense and military sorts do not publish articles of their new toys so there is no telling what they got in their playroom.

Cheers!!!

Really that article doesn't give much information on what it does and seems like someone just talking as they are typing it and to me looks like some kind of propaganda for Russia perhaps due to the recent events.

Most of the russian high tech gadgets is coming from that institute so i wouldn`t be surprised if they did it again.

Sounds to me that the Russians only managed to make an EMP they always were a bit slow technology wise.

Maybe they'll manage to invent a tazer in another 50 years or so then they will make a site to brag about their new electronic prodding electrification implement.

Nothing to see here it's old dated technology.

Since the Georgian conflict , the russians are deliberately showing the weapons they have

Russians have had electric HPM EMP weapons since 70's ,this is just a new generation of electric HPM weapon compression


Russian. Former Soviet Union was the first who successfully. developed HPM weapon, and was far ahead of other countries. on the research of HPM source
ieeexplore.ieee.org...




HPM uses. Until the 1970s, HPM technology was impractical. Over the next two decades, however, developments in plasma physics, energy storage, and the technology of switching devices made these weapons systems viable around the time the Cold War came to an end. The Soviets invested more research in the field than did the West, a logical choice because HPM weaponry is more useful to the less technologically advanced side. The more sophisticated a nation's weapons systems, and the more reliant on microprocessors, the more vulnerable these potentially are to HPM.

Russian authorities claimed that in 1995, Chechnyan rebels used HPM to subvert a Russian security system and gain entry to a restricted-access area. Four years later, the Russians maintained that United States forces used HPM weapons to disable Yugoslav communications during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) campaign in Kosovo.

Carbon-graphite coils capable of generating an electromagnetic pulse used to destroy electronics equipment—especially communications equipment—can be fitted to cruise missiles. Carbon-graphite equipped cruise missiles were used by U.S.-led forces in raids on Baghdad, Iraq, in 1991 and in 2003

xplosive

Dr Malcolm Davis of the Centre for Defence Studies at King's College, London, says the Americans do have an e-weapon that can be used in either a conventional bomb or in a cruise missile.

But both use a high explosive to trigger the energy pulse so can be used only once.

The advantage of a non-explosive type would be that a cruise missile or other unmanned aircraft could fly over a region selecting and irradiating targets with electromagnetic energy - in effect, sweeping the area of electronic capability.

"But I'm not aware that the Americans have perfected any electrically-driven e-bomb technology," he said.

"They have gone down the conventional explosive path because that's quicker and easier to do."

Electrically-powered versions need a very high voltage to generate the microwave output.

Researchers say the problem is not only generating that but controlling it and the associated heat that is produced.

But Dr Davis says the Russians have done a lot of work on such weapons and he has seen a photo of an electrically-driven, shoulder-held microwave weapon - resembling a portable SAM anti-aircraft missile launcher.

'Briefcase bomb'

It was claimed this could knock down an aircraft up to eight kilometres away.

These claims could be exaggerated, he said - but there was no reason technically why you could not generate a pulse of electromagnetic energy in a particular direction.

As long ago as 1998, a Swedish newspaper reported that its country's military had bought and tested a Russian HPM bomb.

The briefcase-sized device was said to emit short, high-energy pulses reaching 10 gigawatts - equivalent to the output from 10 nuclear reactors.

The German company Rheinmetall Weapons and Munitions has also been researching e-weapons for years and has test versions.

It is reported to be collaborating with Russian institutions in developing an HPM generator that could be fitted into a 155mm artillery shell.

They are calling this a magnetic device in the jpg image of it but the device in the image is a vacuum vessel like those used in some of the inertial electrostatic confinement fusion devices I have worked on. I have done a lot of research into plasma vortex fusion and this device looks a lot like some of those systems. Perhaps they have a stable plasma vortex filament stimulating a large alpha production in an isotope of boron like Bussard was working on for the Navy under DOD contract before his funding was cut.

That would produce a lot of energy with a very small device that would look just about like this one.

A boron 11 fusion with a proton in a plasma vortex fusion would produce 3.7 million electron volts per fusion event. If they make it sustained that is the only thing I can imagine producing that much power in that small of a device and looking like that one in the image shown.

LOL @ the crediability of this source... 'Macedonia Online'. LoL!!!

Why is this so funny to you? it is a online newspaper like every other online newspaper.Found the same news at 6-8 different sites with the exact same news.

Indeed but it's a skopjen online newspaper and it's called "macedonian".

Other than that,i felt like checking out an article and i saw this:


In regards to Greece, the Macedonian FM does not see any solution on the name dispute, rather predicts not much would happen in the next four years due to Greece's. "The sovereignty of each country is stipulated in the constitution. It would be rather frivolous for the Republic of Macedonia, under pressure and blackmail, to allow changing of its Constitution and other acts related to the states' integrity and sovereignty", Milososki said.

macedoniaonline.eu...

"blackmail"...?!


Now you see why Nikolas is laughing.

Well i can`t find it amusing,Skopje is the capitol city in a country called Macedonia.Still his post is not keeping to the subject.

Ok,i understand you don't know about this whole matter.

The thing is that it's a stolen name to put it simple.
Other than that,i also posted something that shows that this newpaper is biased.

He was talking about the paper's credibility.


Anyway,i didn't talk about the subject either and that was my fault,i apologise.

Could you post all your sources if it's not a problem?

I'll be waiting.





Btw,i gotta agree with RFBurns on what he said.Indeed,not even the US citizens don't know their goverment's "toys".

What i mostly do is,when i read or hear about matters like this in papers or tv,i assume that they happened/made/whatever some years earlier.

Here are some of them except for the macedoniaonline site.Google around abit and you will find more.I will go abit offtopic to beacuse you got me interested in the stolen name thing,just a question then.
How come more than 120 countries recognized the country as Republic of Macedonia? how can the name be stolen when most of the nations on the earth has recognized them? perhaps a new topic about this issue would be nice?

It says that it might be possible to even have it on a desk,that's impressive.

Personally though i'd be more impressed on devices that are used for defence against electromagnetic weapons.


I can tell ya one thing though,if it was really such a big deal,personally,i doubt that it would be on the news. (i can be wrong though)

I really don't know if they're so many but honestly that doesn't change anything.
If 120 countries would claim that the earth is flat would it change the fact that it's not?Offcourse not.

A new topic about this issue?If you want,start one though i don't see a reason.
Threads are to be made to debate/discuss various things.I don't see anything that can be discussed here.

Well if 120 countries would say the earth is flat while 1 country says the opposite i would keep to the 120 countries,but that`s me

My thoughts as well, but do you have a link to it being old tech?

Also when they show this kind of equipment it reminds me of those first old computers that take up an entire warehouse space,
while the real computers were reserved for the few. Back in 79 I met Steven Hawking at his home and he impressed me with having the first home comp I had ever seen. I still have a monitor like the one he had.

We'll just have to wait and see what the Russians do with this technology. You can bet your hat that if it's worth something, the US will copy it in a short time.
