The US Air Force is developing a new glide-bomb with a high-powered microwave called the counter electronics munition (CEM). Until very recently, that’s about all we knew about it. For example, Maj Gen Dave Eidsaune, commander of the Air Armament Center, used this slide to describe the CEM in a presentation on January 24 at the AIAA strategic and tactical missile systems conference.
About sixmonths later, however, Eidsaune presented mostly the same briefing at a Precision Strike Association event. That presentation has just been posted online. Here’s the CEM slide.
