The E-Bomb Doug Beason talked about his book The E-Bomb: How America’s New Directed Energy Weapons Will Change the Way Future Wars Will Be Fought, published by Da Capo Press. In his book he wrote about what he believes to be the approaching directed-energy (DE) weapon revolution. He explained that these weapons would use light-wave energy, the same spectrum of energy found in microwaves and remote controls, and would replace the conventional weaponry of today. Mr. Beason believed the introduction of these weapons might be more profound than the atomic bomb. He analyzed their implications and how they would impact the wars of the future. Following his reading of a prepared statement, Mr. Beason responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
