Its not microwaves, It is a charged particle beam, likely protons.
It will cause explosives to be detonated, even if buried several feet in the ground, from orbit.
What i got from the patent app. is that the space based system is allready deployed, possibly since 2003-04.
Anyone remember the "dynamite" explosion in North Korea in 04?.
Around that time nasa launched the largest single payload weve ever put into orbit.
The payload was also so secret that even the members of the senate itel. commitee were not apprised as to its true nature, just the cost.
I found this info from a search of DARPA budget expenditures for 2007, I wish I still had the links for it, there were some very interesting things in the report.

Well, we have to have balance ... and the members here at ATS have a healthy minority of what I call TRAITORS, those who want personal wealth at the expense of their country we execute those scumbags.

That same bird told me the military may have already tested it in the middle east. Also said, they were detonating I.E.D.'s while the enemy was setting them up, killing them. Pretty much cooking other explosives in the enemy's hands from far away, before they could use them. Including bullets.
The device I am talking about in my OP is 100% different. It uses pure energy focused on ammunition or explosives, and that energy alone is enough to trigger expansion in explosive substances. It is directly effecting the explosive substance, and has nothing to do with radio controlled detonators.

microwave weapons, yes!
haven't heard about the new energy weapons....
I will say that, from personal experience, the government does have a plane that detonates ieds while flying around.
that is to say it's available....never heard that anyone ever used the thing though....this was back in '07 i heard this btw...
Counter-IED Solution can address simultaneous threats. January 8, 2007 - Using electronic counter measures such as spot jamming, multiple-target spot jamming, and wideband noise jamming, fully field-programmable Broad Shield Tactical Manpack (TMP) counters improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Force protection solution provides continuous frequency coverage and can accommodate fully integrated standard BB-2590 military battery pack. Able to be configured for multiple applications, system has provision for plug-in external remote control box.
LPIC based weapon could, in theory, be fired around corners if mirrors were used.
