EMP’s are actually so dangerous to national defense that the United States Air Force has created the Electromagnetic Defense Task Force (EDTF). The impact of an EMP would be detrimental to the United States critical infrastructure. In an effort to protect the United States, the EDTF has produced a 2018 report outlining the effect an EMP would have should an attack occur.

Tested at the Keystone Compliance Facility using DOD approved EMP testing devices similar to the EMP environmental simulator at Sandia Laboratories, EMP Shield has developed the worlds first whole-home EMP defense technology. This technology has been proven through a federally approved testing facility to withstand over 40x EMP strikes without degradation to the device.

The threat of an Electromagnetic Pulse attack is not a thing of fiction, in fact it is not a matter of if, but when this technology will be used as a devastating weapon of war.
