EMP Shielding

The best way to mitigate the threat – HEMP shielding and IEMI shielding products from MAJR!

Besides the risk of a HEMP (High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse)  attack from rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran, electronic, computer, data and power systems are also vulnerable to the next likely form of terrorism and criminal activity; IEMI (Intentional Electromagnetic Interference).  Complete EMP Shielding is the best defense.

The Danger Presents the Need for EMP Shielding

HEMP is defined as an instantaneous, intense energy field (such as from a high-altitude nuclear explosion) which has the potential to overload and disrupt all electrical systems and tech microcircuits from great distances. IEMI, on the other hand, is the intentional malicious generation of electromagnetic energy from closer ranges. It is much like an intense solar storm generated from the back of a van in your parking lot and aimed at damaging and disrupting vital pockets of your community systems such as banking, data storage, healthcare and portions of the power and communication grids.

The reason an IEMI event is so dangerous, even though it is smaller in nature, is two-fold:

  • Our dependence on computer and electronic monitoring and control systems has grown rapidly in the past two decades to the point that a single, local attack would not only have devastating consequences for the system targeted but, because systems are so interdependent, the ripple effect could be widespread.
  • It is ridiculously easy to learn how to build and rapidly construct a small generator which can fit in a transport van or truck, making criminal detection difficult but damage easy to carry out.

Shield your systems with MAJR Products

MAJR Products Corporation carries a wide variety of products to enable the military, power and civilian industries, and their systems, protection from IEMI by helping turn these systems into a functioning “Faraday Cage”, for HEMP Shielding and IEMI Shielding of susceptible electronic and electrical systems. Our line takes into account all vulnerable points which act as an antenna of electromagnetic energy, and for which there needs to be EMP Shielding, such as:

  • HVAC Systems
  • Power & Signal Panels
  • Door & Panel Hinges, Latches & Brackets
  • Floor Drains
  • Structure Seams & ISO Intermodal Container Brackets
  • Antenna Mounts
  • Cable & Connector Panels
  • Structural Bolts

* Commercial shielded facilities and enclosures usually have lower HEMP shielding and IEMI shielding requirements than does the military.  An exhaustive and informative tech specification bulletin for commercial applications is IEC TS 61000-5-10, and can be purchased from ANSI.

No aspect of EMP shielding can be overlooked when constructing a hardened enclosure, or Faraday Cage, either for HEMP shielding or IEMI shielding for military or civilian industry use.
