Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 November 1998
Status: active
Page Count: 94
ICS Code (Electromagnetic compatibility in general): 33.100.01
scope:

This International Standard defines the high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) conducted environment that is one of the consequences of a high-altitude nuclear explosion.

Those dealing with this subject consider two cases:

- high-altitude nuclear explosions;

- low-altitude nuclear explosions.

For civil systems the most important case is the high-altitude nuclear explosion. In this case, the other effects of the nuclear explosion: blast, ground shock, thermal and nuclear ionizing radiation are not present at the ground level.

However, the electromagnetic pulse associated with the explosion may cause disruption of, and damage to, communication, electronic and electric power systems thereby upsetting the stability of modern society.

The object of this standard is to establish a common reference for the conducted HEMP environment in order to select realistic stresses to apply to victim equipment for evaluating their performance.
