Abstract:

This document presents a methodology which can be applied to hardening ships against a nuclear electromagnetic pulse EMP. The problem is discussed, a basic protection philosophy is advanced and general requirements and criteria are presented. This is followed by a more detailed discussion of the collection and coupling of EMP energy via antennas, Antenna-like structures, apertures, and cables. Then some protection devices are discussed, as well as good construction and installation practices. The applicability of such devices and practices is discussed for ships already in service as well as for those yet to be built.
