We never thought we'd write a post like this but Boeing has really wowed us. Their new Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP)has made history, providing a non-kinetic alternative to existing missile technology and providing to be a win for the whole EMS community.
"This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare," said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works. "In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive."
Yes, that includes COM, and the tech that records it, like our own Voxida DVRS for defense applications. And we couldn't be happier. Imagine a conflict with minimal casualties and collateral damage. We'll take it, even if that means that a Voxida DVRS takes a day off. We're kidding, of course, as our systems stay with the folks that will likely fire, not receive, said missile. Which is all the more great. Hats off, Boeing! Read more.
