WASHINGTON (CBS DC) — The state-owned Russian defense firm, United Instrument Manufacturing Corp., reported to state-owned news site Sputnik that they’d developed a microwave-based weapon they plan to show off privately at the Russian Defense Ministry’s Army-2015 expo June 16-19.

Sputnik describes UIMC’s “microwave gun” as a “super-high-frequency gun capable of deactivating unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the warheads of precision weapons” from a 360-degree, 10-kilometer range.
