Paper Abstract

During the last two decades, in this country and in the former USSR, the military developed an interest in directed microwave energy, both as the means to disable the electronics of enemy assets and in defending against such a threat. The Russians, who are very clever microwave engineers, were probably ahead in the field, at least in the offensive aspects of it. With the collapse of the Soviet Union a good deal of the immediacy of the threat disappeared, but the potential of it remains and the work continues, albeit presumably attenuated.
