Fortunately, the chance of a direct military attack on America from a foreign country is very slim. However, as we’ve seen from 9/11 and other terrorist attacks on our soil, the chance of a smaller and more terroristic threat is still very real. One of those types of attack is from a High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP), which is the dispersal of a nuclear explosion of electromagnetic energy produced in the atmosphere by the power and radiation of a nuclear explosion, whose damage to electronic equipment would be felt over a very wide area.

According to the U.S. Congressional Research Service: “Several nations, including reported sponsors of terrorism, may currently have a capability to use a HEMP as a weapon for cyber warfare or cyber terrorism to disrupt communications and other parts of the U.S. critical infrastructure. Also, some equipment and weapons used by the U.S. military may be vulnerable to the effects of HEMP.”

Therefore, it’s vital that the U.S. develop equipment and technology to thwart the effect of HEMP, especially the military, as the main target and needed response from a HEMP would be our armed forces.

Benefits of MAJR’s Shielded Products

Electronic, computer, data and power systems are most vulnerable from IEMI (Intentional Electromagnetic Interference).  Complete EMP Shielding is the best defense against these effects from a HEMP incursion.

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.
