EMP-General Insights & Thoughts

EMP - PRACTICAL PROTECTION
http://www.endtimesreport.com/EMP.html

Many people have read the book "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen and believe that would be the scenario after a sneak EMP attack. Actually, such an attack is quite possible. North Korea has enhanced-EMP nukes. Iran is developing nuclear weapons and could well have one or two now. And both the Norks and Iran have launched satellites, so they do have the missiles to deliver those nukes. Iran has also launched SCUD missiles from "rust bucket" freighters and has shown they could deliver an EMP attack from off-shore without even using an ICBM.

The attack itself as described in "One Second After" is therefore quite plausible. ... CONTINUED at LINK, above...

EMP-General Info

The title of this article is about Faraday Cages, but it is full of good information for an overview of EMPS! There are also links to some videos to watch.

Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP
http://www.diyreport.com/2015/08/24/thoughts-regarding-faraday-cage-techniques-for-an-emp/

Image As many of you know, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) could end life as we know it in approximately one hundredth of a microsecond. Faster than the blink of an eye. While some may argue the likelihood of such an event, lets focus instead on the methods one might consider to protect their electronic equipment in a Faraday cage.

But first, briefly, an EMP in the context of this article is

EMP: Practical Steps to Prepare

A Green Beret’s Guide to EMP: Practical Steps to Prepare for a “Lights Out” Scenario
http://www.askaprepper.com/a-green-berets-guide-to-emp-practical-steps-to-prepare-for-a-lights-out-scenario/

(Snip) This article is going to focus on some basic things we can do to help us prepare beforehand for such a scenario. Almost all of the readers here on askaprepper.com knows about what an EMP is and some basics about it. We are not going to delve into all of the properties of the EMP. For those who haven’t heard of it, an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) is a high-density electrical field that can damage or destroy electronic devices. EMP can affect cars and trucks, computers, electrical appliances, aircraft, power transmission grids, and anything unshielded from it. This can be delivered by a missile or a satellite and would have devastating effects on the U.S. power grid and infrastructure, as mentioned in this citation: .... CONTINUED at LINK, above ...

What to Do Immediately After an EMP

7 Actions to Take Immediately Following an EMP Strike
http://www.askaprepper.com/7-actions-to-take-immediately-following-an-emp-strike/

(SNIP): So what actions should you take immediately following an EMP strike? Remember that time will be critical, the first few hours (days at most) will enable you to get a jump on everyone else and set the stage for your success. You will immediately know that an EMP, be it from a nuclear weapon or massive solar flare, will have struck your area. Your car will no longer work, your cell phone won’t work, the power will be out everywhere, planes will have fallen from the sky. You will know it was an EMP but the vast majority of the public will not, they will be quite literally sitting around waiting for someone to tell them what to do. You won’t know how large the scope of the strike is but you will have to assume the worst, which would be a nationwide outage.

Why EMP is a serious threat (and what you need to know about it)
http://www.joinipsa.org/IPSA-Blog/4884051

By Gary Teeler, Chief of Homeland Security and Emergency Management for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, IPSA Emerging Technologies Committee Member

Though there have been numerous technological advancements in modern civilization, a reliance on electrical energy in the modern world leaves us more vulnerable than ever to the aftermath of an Electromagnetic Pulse event. The potential effects of an EMP event on the U.S. power grid would likely be devastating to a degree of incomprehension.

History

An EMP first occurred in 1945, following the detonation of atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Scientist noted that after the blasts the atmosphere was saturated with an excess of electrons for several months.

The true forces of EMP were later realized in 1962 as a byproduct of a 1.4 megaton nuclear missile detonation at an altitude of 248 miles over Johnson Island, in the Pacific Ocean. Though this military exercise, named Starfish Prime, took place in a remote part of the ocean, locations as far away as Hawaii, California and Australia experienced radio disruptions. At least six satellites were also disabled by the EMP.

The effects on certain electronic equipment over very large expanses, opened eyes to the potential dangers.

Just over 100 years earlier, in 1859, a natural phenomenon occurred which had similar effects. Now known as the Carrington Event, this severe solar storm effectively knocked out telegraph networks on four continents, which required replacement of the trans-Atlantic telegraph system.

Today’s EMP threat types

EMP threats come in many forms, including electromagnetic attacks, cyberattacks, direct physical attacks and solar geomagnetic disturbances (GMD).

Electromagnetic weapons can range from small suitcase sized radio frequency (RF) energy devices, up to nuclear weapons detonated at a high altitude creating an electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) over a selected target. --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---
