    The recently developed UAVs like USA's Predator and Israeli's Hermes as well as other countless Unmanned Air Vehicles used in today war have no means of being destroyed efficiently.

    A new missile must be developed to counteract the UAV presence in the war scene which would have an explosively pumped flux compression generator. This device would create a EM wave which would destroy all avionics of the UAV in an area.

    I propose to have EPFCG to be included inside a self propelled missile in a launcher that can be held by one man.

    Or are these missiles in existence already? :shrug:
    The recent Georgia-Russia warfare proves that such devices would very much be useful.

    Every weapon needs a counter weapon.

    In Afghanistan War USA supplied anti-MI-helicopter missiles to Taliban to allow the militants to defend themselves against the helicopters. The missiles worked.

    In recent Iraq war the use of Predator UAVs has no mean for Iraqi people to defend themselves. The spydrones over Palestine built by Elisra cannot be shot down by people to defend themselves. A military market potential exists for anti-UAV warfare such as the EPFCG missiles.

    So you're anti-American?

    lets focus on warfare.

    How would you destroy Predator UAV?

    obviously you can...
    launch a missile hoping it will hit
    launch an EM wave that will destroy electronics of avionics of Predator UAV
    somehow hack into Predator Satellite control system to make it blow up/crash itself

    Enmos, what ways can you think of to destroy the Predator UAV and the likes of it?

    The above picture shows a crash in Arizona recently

    in this case what happened was a pilot mistake in a fuel cut-off.

    An EM-pulse would most likely work. But these are reconnaissance craft, they don't carry any weapons.

    aside from the picture, a reconnaissance UAV once locating a target will allow missiles to be deployed to that location. So in essence it does need to carry weapons to be considered a weapon.

    Thou do Em-pulse missiles exist currently? And how can they be mass produced for the needs of warfare?

    What? Are you looking to buy some?

    I'm not sure if they already exist, but they wouldn't be hard to make. I think..

    No, I am thinking of designing them.
    The issue with them I am sure is need for massive amounts of energy.

    All you need to do is take a device that emits a strong EM-Pulse (such already exist) and see if they are light enough to build it into a missile.

    along the same lines... such EM weapon is developed..hmmm air to air to take it down

    Wonderful news!

    Apparently the EPFCG will have a massive effect.

    So basically this missile does not need to explode right next to the Predator UAV it will take down the UAV if it creates an EM-pulse far from it.

    In fact I propose a UAV with a EPFCG missile on it which will sweep an area constantly for any other UAV's and will create an Em-pulse as soon as it locates one. This UAV will be very cheap and will only have this EPFCG device that will obviously take down both the launcher and receiver.

    Um, but a flying aircraft isn't grounded.

    I know the UAV that launched that Em-pulse will be destroyed as well.

    The scariest part of microwave weapons may be that crude forms of the technology are readily available to anyone right now. "Any nation with a 1950s technology base

    guess Russia's good
