The purpose of the study was to assess the potential effects of electromagnetic pulse EMP radiation on the Federal Aviation Administration electronic and electric systems with a focus on the determination of the feasibility of protecting these systems from EMP effects. The report consists of five brief chapters on the characteristics of the high energy EMP phenomenon of a nuclear blast and subsequent equipment susceptibility via radiated and conducted interference. Six appendices document in detail the aspects of grounding, cable coupling, metallic penetrations, shielding, system susceptibility, circuit susceptibility, and the phenomenology of semiconductor damage.
