Electromagnetic Effects an Threats

High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP)

In the past, the Institute dealt intensively with the effects of the High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) from a nuclear explosion. In view of the constantly changing security situation, there has been an increasing demand for scientific services related to HEMP in recent times. Relying on our decade-long and historically grown experience, the business unit offers you, among others, the following services:

  • Research on the HEMP behaviour and planning support for the HEMP hardening of future systems
  • Operating a field simulation facility for coupling measurements on scaled-down models
  • Examination of typical component and device families with respect to interference and damage threshold values induced by direct injection and field coupling
  • Adaptation of theoretical and experimental work to future threats caused by modern nuclear weapons.
