An EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack could take down the entire nation’s power grid, leading to a total collapse of American society.
This is not hysteria or exaggeration. The Air University’s Lemay Center for Doctrine Development and Education has just issued its 2018 report, Electromagnetic Defense Task Force, by Major David Stuckenberg, Ambassador R. James Woolsey, and Colonel Douglas DeMaio. It makes for sobering reading. The report warns: “While EMS [electronmagnetic spectrum] vulnerabilities and threats have matured, national and even international capabilities to deny or mitigate such threats and vulnerabilities remain highly dispersed or incomplete. In some areas, there is a complete absence of strategy. In other cases, traditional deterrence efforts afford little to no utility in preventing adverse enemy action in the EMS. In many respects, this is not dissimilar from deterrence activities in cyber space—which are almost completely ineffective….Unlike some tactical gray zone threats, strategic EMS gray zone challenges can conceivably threaten a nation’s survival. Gray zone EMS threats, such as EMP, were addressed by the commander of the United States Strategic Command, General John Hyten, USAF, during his remarks at the Air Force Association Convention on 20 September 2017, when he noted, ‘EMP is a realistic threat and it’s a credible threat.’ General Hyten went on to note that civil society is not prepared to address the challenges associated with an EMP attack.”
So what can be done in the face of this threat? Read the full report here.
