According to the editors of Popular Science, a group of Chinese scientists from the Northwest Institute of nuclear technology created a working prototype microwave gun able distance to disable a different technique. From all other samples of such weapons, this invention is characterized primarily by the size: if large enough range gun to fit on an ordinary table.
It is Worth noting that microwave weapon first designed to destroy electronic systems, and «shooting» is a high-energy electromagnetic pulse in the range of radiation from 300 to 300 000 MHz. This allows you to hit even targets that have special protection. Penetrating radiation of high frequency overload electronic circuits are either losing health for some time, or else completely fail. The higher the pulse energy, the greater destructive power of weapons.
The development of compact guns is a research group led by Dr. Huang Wenhua. He and his colleagues for 6 years in creating this new generation weapons and recently for his invention he received the Chinese National award for science and technology (China National Science and Technology Progress Award). Scientists have developed the prototype microwave gun can be used as a «hands», and install on different equipment, including missiles, drones and ground vehicles. In addition to the defensive nature of the microwave gun can be used as offensive. Microwave rays can hit the enemy installations, electronic warfare, missile batteries, air defence, communications, control systems and systems of military equipment, including tanks and planes.
the engineers of the State Ryazan instrument factory began the development and creation of laser systems search targets and guided weapons for unmanned aerial vehicles and stationary ground-based robotic systems — this is the official website of the state Corporation rostec, citing the press service of the plant.
