AFRL Century Series – Chapter 6: SPECTRUM

AFRL has been researching and utilizing the energy from the electromagnetic spectrum since its early days at McCook Field in Dayton, Ohio. The first aerial cameras and airborne radio equipment were pioneered by AFRL. Following in the footsteps of these early innovations, AFRL has developed numerous technologies that harness electromagnetic energy, including radar detection, advanced targeting pods, the Demonstrator Laser Weapon System, and the Counter-electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), a game-changing warfare advancement.
