  • Introduction:

    l It is a Future weapon i.e. they are a more

    suitable weapon than conventional weapon

    to achieve shock effect over large target sets

    with small attacking forces.

    l Electromagnetic bombs (E-bombs) can

    perform such a role.

    l The objective is to paralyze the enemys

    communication systems as quickly as

    possible.

  • E-bomb Technology Base:

    l Power source - Explosively pumped Flux

    Compression Generator (FCG).

    l FCG invented by Los Alamos Labs during

    the 1950s.

    l Peak current of an FCG is 1000 X that of a

    typical lightning stroke.

    pediain.com

  • The Physics of the FCG:

    - FCG transfers mechanical energy into the

    magnetic field

    - Peak currents of Mega Amperes demonstrated

    in many experiments

    pediain.com

  • FCG start current is provided

    by an external source:

    l High voltage capacitor bank

    l MHD (magneto hydrodynamic) device

    l Any device that generate mega amperes

    current pulse.

  • FCG Internals:

    l Armature - Copper tube / fast explosive

    l Stator - Helical heavy wire coil

    l Initiator - Plane wave explosive lense

    l Jacket -Prevents disintegration due to magnetic

    forces

    pediain.com

  • FCG Operation:

    l External power source pumps FCG winding

    with start current.

    l When start current peaks, explosive lense

    fired to initiate explosive burn.

    l Explosive pressure expands armature and

    creates moving short

    l Moving armature compresses magnetic

    field

  • Coupling Modes:

    Front Door Coupling through antennas.

    l Destroys RF semiconductor devices in

    transmitters and receivers

    Back Door Coupling through power/data

    cabling, telephone wiring

    l Destroys exposed semiconductor devices

    l Punches through isolation transformers.

  • Damage Mechanisms:

    l Low frequency pulses produced by FCG

    create high voltage spikes on fixed wiring

    infrastructure.

    l Microwave radiation from HPM devices

    can couple directly through ventilation

    grilles, gaps between panels, poor interface

    shielding - producing a spatial standing

    wave inside the equipment cavity.

  • Maximising Bomb Lethality:

    Lethality is maximized by maximizing the

    power coupled into the target set.

    l Maximize peak power and duration of

    warhead emission (using powerful FCG).

    l Maximize coupling efficiency into target

    set.

  • Defenses Against E-bombs:

    l Destroy the delivery vehicle or launch

    platform

    l Electromagnetically harden important

    assets.

    pediain.com

  • E-bomb Advantages in

    Strategic Warfare

    l Not lethal to humans.

    l Negligible collateral damage.

    l No mass media coverage of bombing

    casualties (broadcast equipment destroyed)

    will reduce the threshold for the use of

    strategic air power and missile forces

    pediain.com

  • Conclusions:

    l High payoff in using E-bombs against

    fundamental infrastructure, resulting in

    substantial paralysis.

    l E-bombs will become a decisive capability

    in Strategic Warfare and Electronic Combat.

    l E-bombs are a non-lethal weapon.

    l The critical issues for the next decade are

    the deployment of E-bombs and the

    hardening of fundamental infrastructure.
