Beam Jamming is REAL!
Declassified report on US military studies of Soviet particle beam threats.

"There exists the possibility of beam-bending or collapsing the channel in order to degrade the beam system."

Re: Beam Jamming is REAL!
"The second prospective countermeasure technique, that of beambending, may hold some promise. Note that countermeasure techniques that try to collapse the beam tunnel might also cause sufficient atmospheric disturbances to cause beam-bending. Also, if the target could employ some form of magnetic field which would act on this beam containing charged particles, beam-bending could be accomplished. The closer to the CPBW the electromagnetic or magnetic field can intercept the beam the less would be the requirement for the degree of beambending. Such a system is not possible with today's state-of-the-art technology; however, this appears to be one area that needs to be thoroughly investigated in any future CPBW countermeasure programs."

I came from chasing dreams to feel alone
There must be changes, miss to feel strong
I really need lifе to touch me

Re: Beam Jamming is REAL!
I'd be totally willing to pay extra taxes to finance this.
