Navy seeking high power microwave weapons against speedboats

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) is looking High Power Microwave (HPM) weapons to vessels like Iran’s speedboats. They are looks for High Power Microwave sources and innovative antenna concepts that could potentially enhance the ability to interdict and stop a broad spectrum of maritime vessels through less than lethal means. They also would like innovative concepts for high gain antenna technologies.

An HPM weapon is a directed energy device that uses either the radio frequency (RF) or microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum to deliver energy on a target so as to cause a disruptive or disabling effect.
