CHAMP(Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project. They tested the missile over targets in the Utah Test and Training Range.CHAMP emits bursts of high energy microwaves aimed at specific targets. The test flight successfully knocked out the data and electronic systems at the target site. CHAMP can save lives, time, and money by wiping out all information an enemy has resulting in shorter, easier war. This was discovered by Boeing Sept. 9, 2012.
