So I was reading about some of the possible attack plans on Iraq. They mention the use of EMP
weapons to take out electronic targets. Pretty wild stuff, throw some SciFi in with fact, and UFO
types and we probably have the stuff. Sounds like we should be a little worried about it too.

Noting that HPM weapon "technology is available and maturing", Muellner said:
"The problem has been finding an effective way of aiming them," as well as
protecting the carrier vehicle.
Air Superiority without an "Air" Force?
At moderate power levels, the composite materials used in modern aircraft tend to
absorb microwave radiation rather than reflect it, rapidly aging aircraft materials
and destroying its stealth properties. Higher power levels of HPM can cause disruption
of electrical circuits, particularly in sensitive integrated circuits or magnetic media.

Microwave Weapons Await a Future War
The research on an HPM weapon has concentrated on conventional explosives
wrapped around a coil that has an active electrical field. Once controlled
detonation had taken place, the explosives squeezed the field to produce
the electronic pulse. This device is called an "explosively pumped
