NBC: Microwave Weapons Could Disable N. Korean Missiles

The United States could disable North Korean missiles with microwave weapons, according to a report by NBC on Monday.
The U.S. broadcaster revealed that White House officials had discussed the development of microwave weapons, called CHAMPs, in August.
The weapons would be fit into an air-launched cruise missile and delivered from B-52 bombers into enemy airspace to emit sharp pulses of microwave energy that could disable electronic systems.
The CHAMP project began in April, 2009 at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A document that the broadcaster attained shows that the weapons could be used on weapons of mass destruction.
As missile control centers have many devices that are weak to microwave signals, CHAMPs could be used to disable North Korea's ballistic missiles, according to the NBC report.
