Collapsed antimatter (or CAM)[1] is a material commonly used as a spacecraft weapon.[1][2]

CAM may be deployed by Displacer against targets ranging from spacecraft[2] to planets. A few tonnes of CAM are purportedly sufficient to destroy an Earth-sized planet.[3]

CAM ordnance is distinct from antimatter ordnance.[2]
