CHAMP missile test

CHAMP missile test flight knocks out electronic devices with a burst of energy

There was no explosion and no flying shrapnel. There was only the sound of the missile’s engine as it flew overhead and the sputtering of sophisticated computers crashing as they were hit by a beam of high-energy microwaves.
