It was also in Newsweek. It's existence is well known. What
is not is it's construction, size, or effectiveness.

A good place to start is here
Carlo is one of the few truly knowledgeable people who's published much detail. Here's some other Carlo referenced material

A few years back he and I discussed an idea I had for an inexpensive terrorist version of an EMP device. Instead of using explosives, the pulse compressor-microwave generator are powered via lightening. A radio storm detector combined with a ground-cloud charge detector control the launch of a large model rockets, which trail a wire spool, into the cloud above. If a discharge is initiated its channeled into the EMP HW. A system holding several rockets could easily fit in a 3ft cubed box and placed on a tall building or other location near a target which is sufficiently frequented by lightening storms.

Carlo thought the idea technically practical but not too useful for terrorists who wish to control the timing of their events.
