ETS-Lindgren Presents, “HEMP/ IEMI Threats: Specifics on How to Protect Critical Infrastructure Systems with Specialized Shielding”

 Click here to download a copy of the presentation.


Overview: This webinar will focus on how high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) and intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) pose a serious threat to the operation of critical infrastructure systems – utilities, transportation, communication, etc. – which are dependent on susceptible electronic circuitry. Damage can be mitigated or eliminated with specialized shielding and point-of-entry systems incorporated in facility and equipment design. Specific examples will be provided including a recent EMP shield installation for the control center for a large public utility company. The challenge to accommodate numerous entry points for MEP and HVAC requirements while maintaining shield integrity and pulse protection will be discussed.
