    The picture seems to be indicating an F-22 launching such an EM-pulse weapon, meanwhile the EM-weapon needs to be launched at F-22 to take out its avionics.

    yes... it's a ground attack from a aircraft..but you are missing something ..a key point

    Sorry, Draqon, there is such a thing as EM shielding.

    but drones and UAV's do not have such shielding? It would be too expensive, correct?

    And if there is an EM shielding can you give me links with details. A way needs to be designed to destroy this EM shielding.

    A way must be found to efficiently destroy the threat from small unmanned air vehicles.

    A localized burst of EM radiation to penetrate through EM shielding.

    EM shielding is easier to use than some might think. It tends to be extraordinarily expensive and very heavy. To carry the kind of currents associated with a large EMP, a Faraday cage needs to have thick bars made of highly conductive metals. A room-sized birdcage made of copper bar stock a half inch thick or better is expensive and weighs a lot, but it'll block the EMP of a nuclear weapon.

    Portable electronics in aircraft and other vehicles use circuitry that detects the rise of an EMP transient by monitoring the current in transmission lines connected to antennas, and any unshielded wiring exposed externally. When these circuits detect a building transient they shunt it around the sensitive parts, isolating them from the surge before it breaks anything down.

    There's no way to shield something like an entire aircraft from an EMP, but the vital systems can be protected well enough.

    edit: sorry brah, I misread your post and responded as if I was disagreeing..fixed!
