Turn the lights out on your enemy. Operate unimpeded in the modern threat environment. To do that, you need to control the electromagnetic spectrum.

The U.S Air Force has awarded Raytheon Company $4.8 million to continue the Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile, known as CHAMP, aboard the Conventional Air-Launched Cruise Missile.
CHAMP is a non-kinetic payload that can disable adversaries’ electronic systems. As part of the contract, Raytheon Missile Systems Ktech will refurbish the CHAMP payload and a pair of CALCMs and deliver them to the Air Force Research Laboratory. This is the first major CHAMP activity since the AFRL successfully demonstrated the technology in October 2012.
Non-kinetic systems give the U.S. the option to defeat enemy infrastructure with little collateral damage. The pairing of CHAMP and CALCM, a proven weapon, lowers risk and brings tomorrow’s capabilities forward to today.
The CHAMP industry team includes CALCM manufacturer The Boeing Company and Sandia National Laboratories.
