The Destructive Electromagnetic Pulse Ion Gun, also known as the Destructive Electromagnetic Pulse Ion Carbine, or DEMP Gun, was an electromagnetic pulse weapon manufactured by Merr-Sonn for use by the Galactic Empire. While mostly used as a droid-disabling weapon, it could also be used to incapacitate an organic enemy. It was the predecessor to the DEMP 2 gun built on the same principles.

The DEMP gun released a modified-frequency pulse effect that was capable of overwhelming shielding and hardened circuitry and had three adjustable power settings. The normal firing mode was capable of disabling a droid for some time, while the weaker setting would only pause it momentarily. At its highest setting, the DEMP gun was capable of inflicting physical damage to a droid's internal components, sometimes causing them to catch on fire, and require their complete replacement.

A smaller version was also available in pistol form.
