Whether caused by man or nature, electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) events have the potential to disrupt and permanently damage electrical components and entire systems within most critical infrastructure sectors and impact large-scale infrastructure. While EMP hardening standards exist for military applications, they are often too case-specific, expensive, and impractical for the private sector to implement, leading to very little action being taken to address this threat, despite it having the potential to affect the nation at large.” Department of Homeland Security, Office of Science and Technology
Over the past 40 years, Gaven has established itself as the leader and expert in HEMP / EMP protection, offering a wide range of standard structure and shelter solutions as well as enclosure products.
