Defense Spelled EMP
One of the greatest threats to any country is an air detonated nuclear blast. The reason this is so deadly is the resulting EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) which essentially fries electronics, specifically chips.
So here’s the pitch, if you wanted to protect, say an aircraft carrier, from any airborne threat, say cruise missle, why not put up an EMP type shield to essentially fry any incoming threats? Imagine replacing the current Phalanx system (gatling gun) with one that shoots emp pulses in front of approaching threats.
