    India through its Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is developing an EMP bomb to take out electronic circuits and communication networks of enemy forces, its chief and scientific advisor to the defense minister Avinash Chander said.

    "It will be a weapon that would explore the strong electromagnetic field generating a brief but intense or high power pulse of electromagnetic energy," Chander told the Times of India.

    The director general of DRDO said that the electromagnetic shock wave from the bomb will destroy electronic circuits and communication network "while paralyzing them in terms of radars, communication networking, information gathering sensors, controls and other electronic equipment."

    Chander said the EMP device would give an option to the military as the bomb can target the enemy's mobile targets, air defense systems, mobile or static radars, naval vessels with communication systems and even ill-shielded communication or electronic systems at a military base. The GPS-guided EMP dombs would precede the conventional munitions for strategic air attacks and can cripple military units as weapons of electric destruction.

    The director general of DRDO said that the electromagnetic shock wave from the bomb will destroy electronic circuits and communication network "while paralyzing them in terms of radars, communication networking, information gathering sensors, controls and other electronic equipment." Work is in full swing at the Research Centre Imarat, the Hyderabad-based laboratory of DRDO, to build the new bomb which will be ready for operational deployment within a few years.

    Other DRDO officials said the E-bomb warheads can be delivered by combat aircraft equipped to deliver guided munitions and cruise missiles.

    Chander also said DRDO was developing the next generation of smart bombs or guided bombs, which would have a longer range of upto 100 km (starting from 10s of kms)

    and higher accuracy. "Smart bombs are basically precision guided munition equipped with electronic sensors, control system and adjustable flight fins for providing steering or gliding capacity to hit a designated target with much more accuracy," the DRDO chief said.

    PM Modi also advised the DRDO about its major problem of delaying.

    Dont think DRDO is only all talk and no action.

    India's Top secret Weapons | Indian Defence Forum

    DRDO has proven its capability on many such fields, it may not be able make a tank on time but in such fields it somehow weirdly shows it has the capability to do things well and on time

    Maybe when developing such weapons it completely throws out the 9 am - 5 pm work culture & brings in only passionate scientists much more like the scientists we see in ISRO, probably even more, men who are committed to their work and given are given a free hand
