Many science teams around the globe have worked on creating a viable and portable electromagnetic bomb (e-bomb) over the past few years, one that could easily take out all the electronic systems in a given area, leaving the target dead in the water. However, despite their best efforts, the smallest such devices constructed have been as large as 3.5 meters in length. This has made them impractical for the military applications the Army envisioned for them. Now, researchers at the Texas Tech University (TTU) have designed an e-bomb that is just 15 centimeters in diameter, and 1.5 meters in length.
