When a traditional EMP just doesn’t cut it or a specific target needs to be incapacitated without destroying the surroundings, the Mjölnir targeted EMP system is brought into play. Named after the god of thunder’s hammer, this incredible weapon operates on a one-two-punch method which allows it to shoot lightning at very specific targets up to 100 meters away.
This feat is performed by first ionizing the atmosphere between the weapon and the target, by firing a powerful laser. Milliseconds later an electromagnetic charge is released, which will naturally seek to travel the path of least resistance – down the ion channel which the laser has just formed. The effect of this setup is a fairly precise lightning strike, even capable of disabling most insulated targets, as the laser can burn through the padding on the electronics.
