Preparing to Fire

The I-Bomb creates an extremely powerful electro-magnetic pulse (EMP). These pulses were first observed and investigated in depth when they were generated by nuclear detonations. The device shown here, only one of one of several such I-Bombs in development, enables the disruption and/or disabling of electronic devices and systems within a limited range and without physical contact. It will also corrupt and/or erase any magnetic storage medium such as floppy disks, credit cards, etc. The result is the creation of a physical space guaranteed to be devoid of technology, a Technology Free Zone (TFZ).

Below is a table containing some characteristics of the I-Bomb.  More information will be unclassified on a need to know basis.
