So, this paper simply introduces the generation and main characteristics of the nuclear electromagnetic pulse, the damaging mechanism of the nuclear electromagnetic pulse to the guidance head, and the response of electronic devices to the nuclear electromagnetic pulse, at last introduces the guidance heads defense method to the nuclear electromagnetic pulse.
