Department faculty, staff, affiliates, and adjuncts are welcome to attend these weekly meetings.
Dr. William Radasky, President and Managing Engineer of Metatech, is our featured speaker for the September 27 seminar. His presentation will cover two high-power electromagnetic threats to the electronics operating large power grids. The threats include the high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) that is generated by the detonation of a nuclear burst in space, and the second threat comes from new high-power electromagnetic weapons that can produce high-level transients that can disrupt or damage nearby electronics (IEMI). The presentation focuses on protection from these threats.
