- Matt Drudge is reporting that EMG (Explosive
Magnetocumulative Generator) weapons have been used against Serbian airdefense
targets. EMG or "non-lethal" pulse warheads are designed to
disable or destroy enemy electronics.
- Russian and U.S. engineers developed
the EMG warhead during joint experiments at the Dept. of Energy Labs at
Los Alamos. The joint experiments were done by scientists from Los Alamos
and the Russian nuclear weapons lab, Arazamas-16.
- Fox news also reported that Chinese agents
inside the Energy Dept. stole the design for the special warhead.

- Explosive Magnetocumulative Generator
- The process of creating the magnetic
field in an EMG generator requires a coil wrapped in belt of explosives,
shaped to create an implosion. Before detonation, current is sent throught
the coil which creates a small magnetic field for a split second. The
explosives are then detonated to "squeeze" the coil rapidly and
create an extremely high-magnetic-field. The joint experiments being done
by scientists from Los Alamos and Arazamas-16 have used this type of generator
with large multicoil systems.
- In military form, the EMG is a conventional
warhead that produces a magnetic pulsed field equal to a small nuclear
bomb. EMGs can knock out computers, radios, radars and fry a wide variety
of electronic devices. The U.S. version, an EMG warhead equipped Tomahawk
cruise missile, was considered by the Clinton administration for "non-lethal"
strikes against Serbian radar and command posts. Russian versions vary
but two have been openly developed for Speznatz (special forces) operations,
a backpack EMG and a grenade sized EMG.

The Pentagon, VA
- DOD officials are accusing Moscow of
passing significant long wave radar data to the Serbs that may have led
to the F-117A shoot down. Serbs were able to apply simple modifications
to aging Russian radars to get a better fix on F-117A Nighthawk stealth
