High Altitude (HEMP) EMP Threat

HUBER+SUHNER, a leader in the fields of EMP and Lightning Protection, provides this Applications Note on the proper Coupling of High Altitude EMP (HEMP) into RF Antennas. Referencing the impact of Nuclear explosions in or above the Earths atmosphere, the application note discusses the impact of the resulting intense electromagnetic pulse known as Nuclear EMP or NEMP as compared with a detonation caused at an altitude above 40 km is commonly known as a High Altitude EMP or HEMP. This application note further reviews the effects of the HEMT, appropriate EMP countermeasures and provides guidance for EMP protected installations.
