In the underwater mode portrayed on this slide, the Woodpecker transmitters have been switched to "scalar carriers" mode and the carrier beams transmitted through the ground and into the ocean underwater. (Remember, an artificial EM potential that does not couple to charged particles or ions will travel through the ocean, but a force field will not.)
        Thus a giant scalar interference grid is now established underwater. This grid is scanned by additional scalar beams in the weakly endothermic mode. When a submarine enters the grid, it substantially changes the potential in that cell, and the scanner picks this up. The distant screen now displays the sub as a "track" of light in the appropriate grid square cell. The computer switches in fine-scanning and non-cooperative target identification. It identifies the target as hostile and alerts the operator (by blinking the track and changing its color to red, for example).
      As before, the operator marks the target and enters the firing mode and type of action desired. Again, let us assume the "EMP burst" mode of destruction is to be used. The computer computes the firing parameters and readies the howitzer.  When the commander gives the command to fire, the operator presses the firing button. The computer fires the howitzer.
        Two scalar pulses proceed through the howitzer scalar channel and meet in the submarine. Throughout the sub and its vicinity, a violent EMP is suddenly experienced, knocking out the electrical systems, electronic equipment, and igniting propellants and explosives in the on-board missiles and armament. This explodes the submarine, missiles, and torpedoes instantly.
        At the distant command console, the violent eruption of energy from the exploding submarine is detected by the scanners. It appears on the screen as a sudden strong blossoming of the track. The operator assesses that the target has been destroyed. He immediately engages another target if one is present.
        If the EMP is off-course and misses, the scanners still pick up a smaller blossoming in the offset location. The operator immediately knows he has missed the target. He marks the offset bloom, presses the switch for "Correct!" and the computer makes the firing correction. When the operator again gets a Ready-to-Fire light illuminated, he presses the firing button and fires again at the target, this time with corrections applied.
        Again, the same Woodpecker system -- using timing, phasing, scalar/EM switching and spread-spectrum techniques -- may be involved in several grids and many types of targets. When in a target-rich environment, the firing operators may be very busy indeed.
        As we shall later see, the same weapon system may also be firing in the "cold explosion" or pulsed endothermic mode, where intense bursts of instant and severe freezing are unleashed in the target zone.
