Electronics bomb

  1. 1. A SEMINAR PRESENTATION ON ELECTRONICS BOMB Presented By: Gopal Dhaker 8th Sem, 4th year
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION- E-Bombs are weapons of electrical mass destruction…- Can damage wide range of electrical & electronics equipments i.e.computers, radios, radar, wires or PCBs etc.-they use of non-nuclear confrontation.- using principle of EMP effect.- It has combination of both electric and magnetic fields.- emp device can render the electronics equipments
  3. 3. History First observed during the early testing of high altitude airburst nuclear weapons. Then FCG is built and tested in US, and then in USSR And more recently in CIS.
  4. 4. BASIC PRINCIPLE Work on principle of EMP method EMP stands for: Electromagnetic Pulses. They very strong pulses. They has short lived transient voltages of thousands of volts. its effects on the circuitry of other semiconductor electronics equipments (i.e. MOS). Due to over power the device damages. All types of receivers and communication equipments are highly vulnerable.
  5. 5. Concept of EMP It is an electromagnetic pulse. Produces a powerful electromagnetic fields (i.e. in kilovolts). Due to powerful fields it cause wide damage of electronics appliances. The EMP is in effect an electromagnetic shock wave.
  6. 6. Technology based for E-bomb It is based on Explosively Pumped Flux Compression Generator.
  7. 7. Introduction to Flux Compression Generator It is a type of generator for producing EMP. It is the most mature technology applicable to bomb. FCG is a device capable of producing electrical energies of about tens of Mega joules in ten to hundreds of microseconds. It has peak power kevels of the order of Terawatts to tens of Terawatts.
  8. 8. Working of FCG Producing a pulse of electric current of order of ten of kilo Amperes to Mega Amperes. It has cylindrical copper tubes of armature. This tube is filled with a fast high energy explosive. Armature is surrounded by a helical coil of heavy wire. Which forms the FCG stator. The start current is supplied by an external current source. Such as a high voltage capacitor bank. So by this a intense magnetic field is produced during this operation. So in this method using a fast explosive into the magnetic field.

  11. 11. Targeting E-Bomb The task of identifying targets for attack with E- Bomb is complex. Targets which can be readily identified through conventional photographic, satellite, image radar and human operation. These targets are typically geographically fixed and thus may de attacked providing that aircraft can penetrate to weapon release range. For accuracy GPS/initially guided weapons can be used.

  13. 13. GPS guided bomb
  14. 14. Advantages of E-bomb Permanent damages the electrical appliances such as computers and micro processor devices. Easy to diffuse or to destroy the missiles. Destroys the communication system. It can even stop working of generator or cars. Easy to handle and target.
  15. 15. Limitation It must be noted that thermionic technology i.e. vacuumed tube equipment is substantially more resilient to the electromagnetic weapons. So no damages to the thermionic technology devices.
