Indo-Israeli Standoff EMP-Emitting Missile (DEW For SEAD) To Enter Serial Production This Year


⏩Isarel's Offer to India:

Israel offered to co-develop a variant of this DEW with India on July 7, 2008 during an official meeting in Pune with the DRDO. This was followed by two additional meetings held in Delhi with senior DRDO and IAF officials in August and September 2008. The joint R & D project officially began in mid-2010 and series-production of this DEW will commence later this year, with the Kalyani Group being the prime industrial contractor from the Indian side.

⏩ Nature of Indo-Israeli EMP Missile :

This air-launched, fire-and-forget, expendable DEW, whose main role is to render electronic targets useless, will make use of the airframe of RAFAEL’s Spice 250 rocket-powered PGM, and will have a range of 120km. It is a non-kinetic alternative to traditional explosive weapons that use the energy of motion to defeat their targets. During a mission, this missile will navigate a pre-programmed flight plan (using fibre-optic gyros) and at pre-set coordinates an internal active phased-arraymicrowave emitter will emit bursts of selective high-frequency radio wave strikes against up to six different targets during a single mission.The EMP-like field which will be generated will shut down all hostile electronics. Thus, the whole idea behind such a weapon is to be able to destroy an enemy’s command, control, communication and computing, surveillance and intelligence (C4SI) capabilities without doing any damage to the people or traditional infrastructure in and around it. In other words, it can eliminate an air-defence facility’s effectiveness by destroying the electronics within it alone, via a microwave pulse, without kinetically attacking the facility itself.

⏩ USE of this Weapon for Indian Air Force:


For the IAF, this air-launched DEW will be a ‘first day of war’ standoff weapon that can be launched outside an enemy’s area-denial/anti-access capabilities, and fly a route over known C4SI facilities, zapping them along its way, before destroying itself at the end of its mission. Because of its stealthy design, long-range and expendability, it will fly where no other manned airborne assets could and because it does not blow anything up, its use does not necessarily give away the fact that the enemy is under direct attack in the first place. In that sense, it is also a psychological weapon, capable of at least partially blinding an enemy before it even knows that a larger-scale air-attack is coming. The IAF plans to arm its upgraded Mirage 2000Hs and the yet-to-be-acquired Rafale MMRCAs with this DEW and also with RAFAEL’s Spice-1000 PGM.

⏩Ukraine's Offer :

Interestingly, Ukraine last February during the Aero India 2015 Expo was also showcasing an air-launched DEW, whose poster is uploaded below.

India is also evaluating to use DEW warhead on BRAHMOS. May be it would give some impetus to that.

I really just want to see more comfortable designs for body armour. I mean, like those things the police wear for riot control, but lighter, thinner, and fitter.

Well, basically the equipment of any other advanced military troops. Like the latest weapon systems. I also think that it is time to ditch all of those old equipment and upgrade or a better one. This will also encourage youngsters to join the army. Although the army is not for everyone, there are no harms with trying to appeal to the crown. It is also like a college club trying to catch your attention. Moreover, I also personally think that they should be provided with sturdy vehicles that can almost withstand everything and finally get rid of all of those old cars.

Ejection Seats, consequently, a company specializing in ejection seats for planes can also make seats for astronauts like how NPP Zvezda does.

Martin-Baker Mk.16



NPP Zvezda K-36 ejection seats and shock absorbing seats for space travel.
