When the various capabilities of Tesla shields, globes, and scalar howitzers are integrated together into an
ABM defense, a most formidable Soviet strategic defense capability is apparent.
On this slide we deal only with midcourse and terminal phase ABM defense. Later we shall cover the application of these weapons to launch phase ABM defense, primary phase bomber defense, underwater antisubmarine defense, etc.
Suppose the U.S. is provoked to desperately launch a missile attack toward Russia, as indicated on the slide.
First would come the launch phase destruction of the launched missiles, which we will cover shortly.
Any remaining missiles in midcourse would encounter extremely large, glowing spheres of light, where the EM energy density is contained and held in the spherical shell "energy bottle" of the glowing globes. Each globe might cover an arc of up to about 20 degrees, as seen from the Soviet defended area. missiles carrying MIRV and MARV payloads would not yet have deployed their re-entry vehicles.
As a missile and its payload encounter one of the globular shells, an intense EMP is suddenly experienced throughout the missile and all of its components. Again, EMI shielding is of no consequence since the EMP arises in each increment of spacetime throughout the vehicle volume. The result is instantaneous dudding of all electronic circuitry, including the electronics of the nuclear warheads themselves. The HE content of the nuclear warhead system is violently exploded, totally destroying the configuration of the warhead. A low-order nuclear detonation may occur, but more likely the warhead’s nuclear material is just broken up, finely divided, and set afire.
In addition, all combustible materials are set fiercely afire or destroyed. Explosive materials such as booster propellants and HE explosives are violently exploded. Ablative and plastic materials literally explode into pieces, torn apart by sudden violent ablation and outgassing everywhere within. The remnants of the vehicle are now total duds, as is the payload, including re-entry vehicle, nuclear warhead electronics, nuclear materials from the disruption and explosion of the HE portion of the warhead system, etc.
Still, each piece of the debris must pass through the glowing shell once more before it exits. Thus a second "shot", precisely as effective as the first, still awaits each and every piece of the debris plunging along inside the shell as it exits.
As the debris continues on to the latter part of midcourse and early terminal phase, any portions large enough to track are subjected to small, intense Tesla globes where the energy density in the shell is many orders of magnitude greater than in the larger globe used in earlier midcourse. This part of the defense system simply services each incoming "blob" methodically, probably first in the pulse mode. Later, any blobs still remaining are given the maximum "continuous heating" mode with a small Tesla globe, to actually vaporize metals and materials.
In the unlikely event that anything active still remains, or that an object has managed to elude the large and small Tesla fireballs, a Tesla shield is still to be encountered, towering over the protected area. For significant targets this shield will be concentric, and will contain three or more concentric Tesla shields. Again, the approaching vehicle will be subjected to multiple EMP’s and severe heating throughout its volume. In addition, the concentric shields will "clean up" and sterilize any gamma radiation and EMP resulting from any deliberate high altitude defense suppression nuclear burst that somehow (inconceivably!) gets through the launch phase ABM system, and the Tesla-globe midcourse and early terminal phase defenses.
As can be seen, the system complex represents a most formidable defense that certainly approaches 100% effectiveness against the present triad, and even against the addition of cruise missiles.
In addition, since these weapons suffer from very strange constraints and limitations, the scalar transmitters are actually dual mode: they become conventional radars by simply switching into the ordinary EM mode. They are part of the more conventional ABM defense system complexes we presently recognize in the Soviet Union. In this conventional role, backup ABM missile interceptors are available, to be employed in case the conventional role must be assumed.
Later we will address the reason for the strange limitations which must be placed upon unqualified use of the large scalar EM systems, particularly in the pulse or "burst" nodes.
