Abstract:

This report describes the FD-565 test object, the test facilities of the Patuxent River Naval Air Test Center, the data collected, and the test results. Tests were performed on the FD-565 to determine its ability to survive the effects of a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse HEMP. This test is part of the EMP Mitigation Program whose aim is to ensure that EMP would not significantly impede the reestablishment of telecommunications following an attack against the U.S. that includes high-altitude nuclear detonations. The EMP Mitigation Program attempts to maximize the value of the HEMP response data available.
