Project CHAMP. Electromagnetic rocket is preparing for the series


Rocket with CHAMP system on board - demo image


Various electronic systems are of particular importance to armies and civilian infrastructure. Their destruction or incapacitation can make a decisive contribution to victory. In this regard, the leading countries of the world are developing a diverse electromagnetic weapon. In the USA, the most interesting results in this area were obtained by the CHAMP program, developed by order of the Air Force.

A joint project


Work on the CHAMP program (Counter-electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project - “A promising project for a powerful microwave rocket to destroy electronics”) began at the end of the last decade and was carried out by several organizations. The leading role in the program is played by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) represented by the Directed Energy Directorate (DED).

It was planned to involve commercial enterprises as developers and manufacturers of specific products. So, almost immediately after the start, Boeing joined the program in the person of the Phantom Works branch, which solved development tasks. Subsequently, there was a proposal to engage Lockheed Martin as a manufacturer of delivery vehicles for CHAMP products. One of the applications of technology was developed at Raytheon.

To date, the bulk of the work on the new EMP weapon has been completed. The necessary tests were carried out, and in May 2019 there were reports of the delivery of the first CHAMP pre-production systems as part of modified aviation missiles to the Air Force.

Goals and objectives


The goal of the CHAMP program was to study the possibilities, search for solutions and develop technologies for creating weapons capable of hitting the enemy’s electronics with a powerful electromagnetic pulse. At the same time, the possibility of the full implementation of the found concept and its bringing to operation in the army was not ruled out.


CHAMP or similar EMP weapons can be a convenient addition to existing electronic warfare systems. EW systems are able to temporarily disable enemy systems, while EMR weapons simply destroy them. As part of the program, it was planned to develop methods for optimal and flexible joint application of two classes of systems.

As part of the CHAMP program, a search was made for technologies and technical solutions suitable for use in various fields. On their basis, an EMR system was developed for aircraft missiles, and then a project for a land complex with similar capabilities appeared.

One of the objectives of the program was to reduce the pulse power to the minimum necessary. This made it possible to reduce the requirements for the power supply of military equipment, and in the presence of high-precision guidance systems - dramatically reduce collateral damage. Saving energy also allows you to hit multiple targets in one flight.

Real results


On October 22, 2012, Boeing announced the first successful testing of a CHAMP product as a missile weapon. The press release was accompanied by a short video demonstrating the basic principles of work and statements by the developers. It is noteworthy that the experimental rocket or CHAMP system was shown only in the form of computer graphics.

From the published data it follows that the result of the program was a compact electronic unit suitable for mounting on aviation rockets. It includes power supply facilities and a microwave radiation generator with a directional antenna device. During the flight, CHAMP can aim the antenna at a given target and “hit” it with directional EMP.


Demonstration of the principle of the rocket with CHAMP

The missile flew over the training ground along the specified route. Several times at given points, the CHAMP system generated an electromagnetic pulse of the required power and configuration. As conditional goals, various electrical and electronic devices were used. All of them failed due to EMR exposure, demonstrating the potential of the CHAMP product.

In June 2013, Raytheon tested its version of the CHAMP system as a self-propelled ground based system. All devices were placed in a container on a standard car chassis. An antenna device with a characteristic large mirror was installed on the roof of the container. Using communication and control equipment, the EMP armament complex was connected to a surveillance radar.

During tests over the test range, unmanned aerial vehicles flew. The radar performed their detection and gave target designation to the CHAMP system. Her task was to defeat the UAV with a directed electromagnetic pulse. The complex worked in a fully automatic mode, although under the supervision of operators. He managed to successfully hit all the targets, and it was not a question of temporarily incapacitating - the electronics of the targets burned out.

Media Question


The result of the CHAMP program was a set of technologies and technical solutions on the basis of which new weapons can be created. So, for combat aircraft, a special electronic unit has been developed, suitable for use with different carriers. Already in the tests of 2012 it was used as a payload for an experimental rocket. In the future, this idea was developed.

By the middle of the last decade, AFRL and allies identified the main paths for the further development of aviation EMP weapons. It was proposed to install electronic blocks on various air-based missiles. The possibility of using air-to-surface missiles such as AGM-86 ALCM, AGM-158 JASSM, etc. These types of missiles can be used by strategic and tactical aircraft.


The launch of the AGM-158B JASSM-ER rocket fighter F-16. Similarly, CHAMP products will be used in the future.

In the spring of 2015, the US Air Force announced a new phase of the CHAMP program. Now it was planned to adapt the existing EMI weapon to the installation on the AGM-158B JASSM-ER missile. To carry out these works, the company Lockheed Martin was involved in the program.

The JASSM-ER air-to-surface missile was chosen because of the optimal balance of flight performance and carrying capacity, as well as due to the availability of a modern, efficient autopilot. Such a missile can go along a rather long and difficult route and “cover” several targets in one flight. A variant of the CHAMP system for the AGM-158B per flight is capable of delivering up to hundreds of pulses that affect electronics.

Operational readiness


In May 2019, an unexpected and curious message appeared in the American specialized media about the beginning of the deployment of promising EMR weapons. It was alleged that Boeing Phantom Works, by order of AFRL DED, manufactured and delivered at least 20 CHAMP payloads to the Air Force.

The type of missile equipped with an EMR system was not specified. It was reported that the carriers of such missiles will be long-range bombers B-52H. A rocket with CHAMP called ready for use. No technical or organizational details were provided.

According to past plans, full-scale production and deployment of new JASSM-ER missiles will only begin by the mid-twenties. Due to the correct choice of platforms for placing the CHAMP system, it is supposed to ensure compatibility with both long-range and tactical aircraft. This will be the desired outcome of the ongoing CHAMP program. EMR weapons will go into service and become a flexible tool for solving certain tasks.

In the meantime, we are talking only about pre-production and, probably, military tests. According to their results, the Air Force can update their requirements, which will lead to a revision of the project. However, the updated weapons will be based on the well-known and mastered technologies created in the first stages of the CHAMP program. This allows the U.S. Air Force to show some optimism and expect combat-ready microwave weapons by the scheduled dates.

      But do not meet, do you think Putin shows cartoons about everything, for everyone, and does not hold anything in his pocket? In vain, we are very busy with explosive EMP, there were even rumors about a rocket with an explosive EMP generator, but there were no rumors, there were no cartoons, and special officers on possible developers would say only one thing - they didn’t, they didn’t do it, we don’t know, they have such a job, after the Putin personally clicked on the button and sent the X-101 into flight, the State Security Committee “Raduga” claimed that there wasn’t such an X-101 missile and the “Rainbow” did not develop them, and offered to go into the woods

      A pulse can be triggered inside the waveguide, it doesn’t affect the surrounding equipment, but sending it after the waveguide in a narrow stream is a problem, but it seems to me that it’s faster to solve it, our physicists are the best in magnets, electromagnets and particle control in a magnetic field, and there and the control of the magnetic field itself nearby

    A lot of words - a little specificity.
    Blah blah blah from the ad.
    After a surge of interest in EMP ammunition in the late 80s and 90s, as research came to the conclusion: the creation and saturation of troops with EMP ammunition is ineffective.
    I explain. EMR can (I emphasize - can, i.e. the impact is not guaranteed!) briefly (for a period of several seconds to several minutes) to disable radio-electronic equipment. AND hit to the same equipment conventional lethal ammunition will destroy this equipment forever. At the same time, for delivering an EMI ammunition to a target, you need the same thing as for delivering an ordinary “lethal” one: the same projectile, the same missile, with the same accuracy to several meters. hi
    In this connection, the logical conclusion: if the cost of a short-term incapacitation of an object of influence is equal to the cost of its destruction, is it not better to immediately try to destroy it? request Actually, they decided so.
    So why are these gestures according to the "CAMR project"? "Issue up to 100 pulses" and briefly extinguish several objects? And who will give it? Who will let such a rocket calmly fly and hit, you know? Only those who do not have air defense at all.
    In addition, for at least some efficiency of EMP, a very large power is needed! No other way. Therefore, this was achieved in an explosive way: i.e. amy ammunition was detonated near the target. And here, the businessmen promise to install some kind of “microwave oven” on the expensive rocket, which will “shoot” pulses 100 times and hit, and hit, and hit ... Why? Where does energy come from if it is precisely the “damaging factor”?
    It smacks of another high-tech and meaningless drink of the US military budget. drinks
    The general conclusion: buy good anti-aircraft defense and do not be afraid of anyone. good

      senseless drink of the US military budget

      To incapacitate a radio-electronic system by blasting, you need to know its exact position and have penetration ammunition if it is in cover. On the other hand, the radius of destruction of EMP ammunition is from 5 to 20 km, which is comparable to the impact of nuclear weapons. Moreover, during tests in powerful EMR generators - vircators in the immediate vicinity i.e. about 1 km, even the power cable and ammunition explode. Those. there is an effect and the exact position of the control and communication objects does not need to be known. For example, according to representatives of the Thales company, it was in this way that their communication and control systems were withdrawn from Saddam Hussein during the beginning of Operation Desert Storm, and not as it is written in our reports because of a “bookmark” in their equipment.
      The problems of any media such as CHAMP for AGM-158B lies in its own protection and they are disposable. Therefore, the American company is trying to reduce power with an increase in the directivity of radiation. For a device with a virtual cathode, this is extremely problematic, and the guiding structures here work poorly, or rather in any way, they break through them stupidly.

          Really. Somehow the leadership of the military-industrial complex of Belarus wanted to surprise us with “high technologies”. Even their scientist was invited to the luminary to demonstrate how a computer monitor explodes 10 meters from their EMP generator. Of course, besides a smile, your low-intellectual irony and the Belarusian "desire to invent a bicycle" does not cause. But Belarus is still far from the United States and not Russia, where it has been doing this research for almost 50 years, which means there are some reasons to consider it promising.

            Here is the specific situation. There is an electrical substation. This site, conditionally, 100 to 100 m including the exclusion zone. If you explode 200 kg of EMI ammunition over it, the substation will be disabled. Everything will burn out there. Repair work of the day will be required from a few to a couple of weeks (depending on the availability of qualified workers and supplies). But if 200 kg of ordinary RDX pressed into a rigid “glass” (that is, a banal “250 kg” caliber bomb) fall into such a substation - that's all, amba, the substations are frantic. It will be easier to build a new one than to restore an old one.

            I recommend everyone to study here such material https://tnenergy.livejournal.com/145111.html - there is more about EMP from an atomic explosion, but also a lot about the basic characteristics of EMP in general.

        According to the logic of local war, it may be so, but still debatable. All the same, it will not work to quickly replace the air defense system, and the reserve is limited, and besides, the calculation is out of order.

        Air defense stations with the same success are covered with small striking elements of anti-radar missiles.
        Radars and rockets also become worthless, electronics as a whole is intact, and part of the calculation housed in cars, too.

    There are very deep doubts that anyone owns more or less serious development of em weapons of multiple action. The technology for creating a powerful EM pulse on an explosive pulse has been known for a long time. But this is not a controlled technology, and therefore requires constant testing to create statistics. The creation of controlled technologies, not only for a specific range of perturbations, but according to the algorithm, requires a very powerful inductor and capacitor. However, not many people realize that high voltages and currents in the solenoid also create equivalent self-induction effects. Therefore, first of all, you need to radically change the design of these devices. What no one has! Moreover, a new type of device is needed that would maintain a high energy density of magnetic fluxes and not scatter them.

        Firstly, if a superconductor would displace the internal magnetic flux, then we will at least get a dipole polarization with a dominant vector. And this means the presence of current. Therefore, anyone who is recognized in an applied manner on this topic should pay attention to this. Secondly, you need to understand to what levels this potential difference can be. Because further, the superconductor loses its stability to existence.

          What else to write, on Wikipedia, almost everything turns out that way.
          True, superconductors, in addition to the above, in a powerful magnetic field can have a reduced transition temperature or a reduced transmission current.

          By current strength until the loss of superconductivity found only this:
          Second-generation superconducting tapes with a width of 12 mm and a thickness of 0,1 mm in liquid nitrogen in the absence of an external magnetic field pass current up to 500 A. In an external magnetic field of 1 T, the critical current still reaches 100 A, and at 5 T - up to 5 A .

            Yes, but this does not mean that the internal field is being supplanted. this means that in the structure of the material systemic changes occur that form not just polarization, but spin, which mainly affects the unidirectional current vector.

    "Stuffing" of the type of "star wars". Even theoretically, the explosive magnetic generator of electromagnetic radiation can only be one-time. I think that the dimensions of the equipment are decent.
    And about the silence / reflection and not having analogues, to the developers of the Alabuga rocket.

      But the general message is from the same series. Destruction of the enemy with minimal destruction of infrastructure, as it is not economically viable.

    But do not meet, do you think Putin shows cartoons about everything, for everyone, and does not hold anything in his pocket? In vain, we are very busy with explosive EMP, there were even rumors about a rocket with an explosive EMP generator, but there were no rumors, there were no cartoons, and special officers on possible developers would say only one thing - they didn’t, they didn’t do it, we don’t know, they have such a job, after the Putin personally clicked on the button and sent the X-101 into flight, the State Security Committee “Raduga” claimed that there wasn’t such an X-101 missile and the “Rainbow” did not develop them, and offered to go into the woods

    then why if we have such cool developments, the army just recently put some kind of provincial drone, an analogue of the old mq1?

      There is also the S-70 in development, which has already flown in tandem with the SU-57 in standalone mode, without an operator, it took off, flew and landed

    Inhuman weapons must be prohibited! The clap, and the FIU databases were reset, and the pension money evaporated. Clap, and according to the state register, all remained without property. Recall more about the "smart city" and "digital government"! Z. S. The Spaniards miraculously survived 11 months without a government, and increased their GDP compared to the estimated one. And we can do so, without sensitive leadership, I doubt it. laughing Z. Z. Y. Worse than an atomic bomb. Strict planetary ban.

    Even in Nazi Germany, they tried to create electromagnetic torpedoes. They worked unpredictably. Of course, there will be those who say that since then technology has gone a long way. Yes, technology has gone a long way, but magnetic anomalies from planet Earth have not disappeared since then.

      Listen, mouse. Do you feel the difference between an electromagnetic torpedo operating on large masses of iron and electromagnetic radiation? For simplicity, it’s like between a fridge magnet and a microwave.
      Of course, there are those who say that since then technology has stepped far
      Yes, but the level of human intelligence has basically remained the same. Paradox, don’t you find it? .. maybe the exam is just to blame ...? not .. just brains dry out from inaction.

        You have very accurately noticed that intelligence needs to be adapted to large volumes of data, otherwise the brain is lost in information and stops working productively, and most importantly, it is not able to distinguish seeds from chaff. Therefore, new technologies for analyzing big data are at the same time the forerunner of new discoveries and inventions.

          Actually, it was a sarcasm in the address of the interlocutor who calls himself with a mouse and clever smart bukoffs from the keyboard. Although it is unlikely he understood this sarcasm - for this victim of progress it’s hard to move the brains, especially if they are not burdened with intellect or even erudition within the school curriculum

    I agree that Navalny is the CIA-shnik. But this does not mean that he is telling a lie. Therefore, everyone decides what to do with this information. Trump personally makes excuses for every “slap” on himself, his environment, and his family. But Putin doesn’t even participate in the presidential debate and still reads a piece of paper, so it’s useless to wait for a dialogue. Some may even reach 2024.

    CHAMP sucks: military electrics and electronics are shielded with foil and other metal coatings, so no EMR is scary for her, except for the antennas of radio stations and radars (and they self-reset in 10-15 minutes).

    In addition, in order to have a more or less sane radius of destruction (up to a dozen km), an electromagnetic pulse must be generated by a disposable explosive magnetic generator, and not a reusable weak-emitter.

    To stop a civilian vehicle during an anti-terrorist operation, CHAMP will still do, but not for military use.

      Not a fact, it all depends on the intensity of the em field, its frequency, and, possibly, on the time of action (in case of grounding, and further according to the Joule-Lenz law).

        The action of an EMP depends solely on its power - a pulse induces a current in the conductors that burns the electronics / electrical engineering (if it is not shielded by a metal foil).

          Not only in electromagnetic logic elements, EMR can also cause a “breakdown” (a strong drop in resistance in the opposite direction, even for gas-discharge devices).

          Concerning the foil: non-contact hardening by induction heating is used in industry, i.e. at high values ​​of the foil tension, and indeed, any shielding will burn from the induced currents caused by the alternating magnetic field.
          In an extreme case, you can see the melting of bronze in the microwave.

            The strength of the current induced in the shielding coating is directly proportional to the linear dimensions of the coating, with their small size, foil is quite enough, with a large size, metal cases of various thicknesses are used, isolated from the internal equipment.

              Are the coating parameters determined for some standardized EMR value (magnetic field strength, power, or something else; for some frequency and frequency spectrum; at a certain time) or are complex tests meant (from the microwave range to the X-ray)?
              The binding to the linear dimensions is due to the potential difference and the resistance of the shielding layer or the degree of shielding?

              Ps interesting to know really

                EMP - broadband radiation with a wavelength from kilometer to millimeter; everything that is smaller (especially X-ray) is extinguished in the air atmosphere.

                The formula for calculating the current induced by external electromagnetic radiation includes the parameter L - the length of the conductor (the largest current is induced in overhead power lines).

      In addition to artificial sources of EMP, there are natural sources, lightning, the power of EMP of some of them at a short distance from the aircraft is very high, and it does not matter to him.
