Woolsey and Pry wrote a pretty convincing piece on the necessity of the SHIELD Act for Breitbart Big Peace, and DR recommends our readers read it. Another Carrington Event that would collapse life-sustaining electric grids and critical infrastructures everywhere on Earth is someday inevitable. So, between all those big, nasty foreign meanies out there, and the SUN, the SHIELD Act looks like a national security imperative that Defense Review supports.
Could you do a review on products that claim to protect electronics and vehicles from EMP attack? NEW YORK -- One of America’s most potent symbols of the Cold War is to re-open more than a decade after it was abandoned. The portal into the bowels of the Cheyenne Mountain complex is shown in this photograph taken on Tuesday, Sept. A visitor to the Cheyenne Mountain Operations center walks into the facility past a 3 foot thick, 25 ton blast door in Colorado Springs, Co. The blast door stands open into the inner sanctum of Cheyenne Mountain, the blast-hardened command center for the nation's defense in this photograph taken on Tuesday, Sept. Military personnel walk towards the entrance of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) at Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, Colo on Jan.
This picture provided in 1970 by NORAD shows the entrance of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) at Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, Colo. Entrance tunnel to the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) installation under Cheyenne Mountain near Colorado Springs, Colo., is seen in a May 24, 1965 file photo. The heart of North America's system for warning of enemy attack is being buried deep in granite in Cheyenne Mountain, five miles from downtown Colorado Springs, Colo., shown June 4, 1964.

Imagine not having any electricity for days, weeks, months or even years… no lights, no communication channels, no water, no refrigeration, no navigation systems, no gas pumping, no food transportation, no waste pumping or garbage collecting. Understanding the probability of an EMP of sufficient field strength, during your lifetime, is sufficient to warrant action on your part to protect your devices and solar panels from it.
There are differences in effect and magnitude between nuclear high-altitude EMP (NHEMP, or EMP caused by a nuclear weapon detonated high above the earth), geomagnetically induced EMP (GIEMP or EMP caused by solar weather), and nuclear low-altitude EMP (NLEMP or EMP from a nuclear weapon detonated near the ground). NHEMP is not a single EMP pulse, but rather, it a pulse consisting of three separate components: E1, E2 and E3. E1 is an extremely fast and brief pulse that induces very high voltages in electronics within roughly line of sight of the detonation. Unlike the previous two components, E3 induces extremely high voltages in long conductors that run parallel to the earth’s magnetic field such as power lines, phone lines, railroad tracks and metal pipelines. The affected area can be as small as a few hundred mile radius, or can be so large that it can affect the entire planet. NLEMP is similar to NHEMP, but it lacks the thousand-fold amplification caused by its higher-altitude sister. How can we shield solar panels against all three components and all against all three threats? Current should be able to travel unimpeded through the conductive outer skin of the Faraday cage. Since most DIY Faraday cages are either too bulky, too heavy or too delicate to travel with you in your rucksack or backpack, another solution is needed to protect portable solar arrays, portable solar chargers and other portable solar gear in your pack. Since an NHEMP could produce almost double the field strength that 40dB of shielding will protect, take the added precaution of sealing your solar panels inside two layers of bags which each provide at least 40dB of shielding.
Some shielding is definitely better than no shielding, but there is no reason to run the risk.
Lastly, make sure that the bags that you choose have a non-conductive inner layer just like needs to be installed in a Faraday cage to prevent electricity from arcing from the conductive layer(s) of the bag into the solar gear that you are trying to protect. EMP caused by nuclear weapons has three different types of effects that need to protected against. Solar panel & electronics stored in inexpensive shielding solutions such as Faraday cages and Faraday bags are only protected from E1 & E2 while they are inside their shielded storage containers! And you know the principles involved in building an effective Faraday cage, what to look for in Faraday bags and that one layer of most of the bags on the market today is insufficient to protect against EMP.
Now you now know the basics of protecting your stored and portable solar gear against EMP in ways that almost anyone can afford! Watch for the second part of this article HERE to learn the principles involved in protecting grid-connected solar installations like you may have mounted to your rooftop or near your home.

Part II of the article will be published tomorrow and it goes into more detail specifically about protecting a structure and its contents. Read Part II and if you still have questions about that, ask again and I'll answer your question in the comments section of Part II, OK? The short answer is, "EMP can affect some small batteries, so shield them." But this is a VERY important question and I'd really like to write an article (or perhaps a paper) addressing this topic since there is so much lousy advice circulating about it online.
Hi, I presume the generators were under load, or at least cycling, if they were damaged, correct?
My understanding is that the generators were running and connected to energized and monitored sections of overhead telecom cables.
Since making and storing a faraday cage is more challenging for a 4' x 8' solar panel, are there any alternate ideas? Yes, whether your solar panels are mounted on the exterior of your vehicle or carried inside, they would be vulnerable to EMP unless you take steps to protect them. Yes, I know for a fact that 1 mil thick aluminum foil provides enough shielding to protect against EMP of up to 50 thousand volts per meter. The amplitude, frequency and polarity of the wave(s) which impinge upon your equipment will be the determining factors in estimating the damage which will ensue from an EMP. Shielding the solar panel with a conductive medium will of necessity reduce the effectiveness of the panel by diminishing the amount of light it receives.
Shielding the output wires requires encasing them in a grounded conductive shield which is grounded at one end only to prevent ground loops. Since we don't know the frequencies involved in a potential EMP threat we must design for a worst case scenario.
An expensive way to proceed is to NOT shield the system and allow it to operate until (and if) an EMP strike occurs. I do not belive a person can be prepared to survive I do how ever believe you can have the education and tools for a fighting chance to prevail and this is a good start at an education for. We already have the technology available to us to protect the grid and homes from EMP, but it cost's more money, so a utility company that implements it won't be able to compete with a company that doesn't.
If you want to know more about what you can do to make that happen, sign up for the newsletter at EMPActAmerica.org to learn more about EMP, advances that our enemies are making in the field and when legislation is being proposed. First, I should make it clear that I do benefit in any way by recommending any particular vendor. Water pump will be wind powered and the greenhouse and house heated by sun and an HHO furnace.
Be sure to check out Part II of this article since it contains information that applies to the type of project that you are working on. Cheyenne Mountain, the subterranean bunker and command centre built beneath Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, is being refurbished by the Pentagon to provide protection for America’s modern defense systems that could be targeted by an electromagnetic pulse attack.
This photo of part of the huge tunnel complex gives some idea of the size of the combat operations center being built for the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD). 20, 1971, shows a newsman the warning tape erroneously transmitted to the nation's radio and television stations via news service broadcast wires.

Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
You have read and agree to the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions - opens in a new window or tab. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. This is the potentially cataclysmic threat that EMP poses, and the reason to plan your survival. Gamma rays interact with the earth’s magnetic field causing it to re-radiate a powerful EMP and scatter high energy electrons, creating a thousand times the EMP that the same weapon would cause in a lower-altitude burst. It affects all electronics that have sufficient conductive area, whether they are connected to the grid or not. Much of its effect on the grid would be protected against by lightening protection, if the lightening protection circuits were not already burnt out by E1 when E2 arrives.
E3 travels through the grid, blowing fuses, destroying transformers, knocking out substations, power plants and burning out any sensitive electronics connected to the grid. Although the GIEMP can affect a greater area, it can’t perturb any electronics that are not connected to the grid. That’s because the nuclear weapon detonates too low to cause the earth’s magnetic field to re-radiate EMP. Just protect them against NHEMP, since it packs all three components and is the most powerful type of EMP.
If you use an ammo can, for example, remove the paint where the lid touches the body of the box and remove the rubber gasket since they would impede the free flow of current through the can.
Because of the large frequency range we must protect against a hole as small as a ? inch could compromise the integrity of the Faraday cage for our purpose. Make sure to find out the strength of the shielding in the bags before you make a purchase. Most bags are designed to protect sensitive semiconductor products from electrostatic discharge or to hide your passport and credit information from would be identity thieves so the most shielding currently offered in a bag is a little over 40dB.
You may not be far enough away from “sky zero” for the field strength of the EMP to weaken enough that your panels will be safe.
A descendant of pioneers, Cache was raised in the tradition of self-reliance and grew up working archaeological digs in the desert Southwest, hiking the Swiss Alps and Scottish highlands and building the Boy Scout Program in Portugal. That should be easier since Part II goes into how to shield installed panels and larger spaces, but I'd be glad to go over some of the aspects of shielding a vehicle for you.
Part II of this article, which will be released tomorrow, will talk about what is involved in protecting larger volumes and installed panels. Part II of this article will be published tomorrow and it's about the principles of protecting installed solar arrays and larger spaces so be sure to check back. If only a small percentage of our largest transformers are knocked out it would take 3-4 years to get the power back since no protocol even exists to "cold start" modern power plants. It is my understanding that the powers that be were told of maybe an impending EMP attack on America, And I am wondering if the power companys and the government have been work on a way to secure our power plants and sub stations, In my town there is a big power generation plant, and crews have been working on it for 2 years now nonstop, But as always secure your own gear people.
Because of this, nothing will be done to shield our critical infrastructure until we pass legislation requiring it, so vote for the shield act! I'm working on building a camp and running everything on 12 volts with a small inverter for the fridge (until I can build a water-cooled unit), furnace blower and whatever small appliances I'll have. The trickiest part will be any cable runs since they should be shielded and surge suppressed. If we can't protect our electric grid infrastructure, including communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water, then what's the point? A scene from the 1983 film 'War Games' in which NORAD reacted to a perceived Soviet nuclear attackThe complex was closed in 2006 after the government deemed Russia to no longer be a threat, with NORAD, the North American Aerospace Command, moved to the nearby Peterson Air Force Base. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. It happens so fast (1-2 nanoseconds) that surge protection used in the power grid can’t clamp fast enough to stop it and will be disabled by it.
We should round up to 80dB to allow for wear and tear that will occur to Faraday cage over time. But because large currents could be induced into conductors, it is a good idea to ground large cages to prevent electrical shock when you touch the cage to open it. To protect portable solar equipment carried in my backpack, I use lightweight bags marketed as Faraday bags to shield them. Cache was mentored in survival by a Delta Force Lt Col and a physician in the US Nuclear Program and in business by Stephen R. The whole shell needs to allow the free flow of electricity so special attention must be paid to where the sheets join, windows, doors and where they seal. But keep in mind that it's a lot harder to shield an electric vehicle than an older vehicle that uses a gasoline or diesel engine. But just Compton scattering was once new to us, we are constantly learning about new properties of EM energy. Your vehicle should be made as EMP-resistant as possible, which would be a good topic for another article (or an entire book), but I'd be happy to give you some pointers on what's involved in protecting your vehicle once you've read Part II of this article since it talks about shielding larger volumes and installed panels, so be sure to ask again after you've read part II so I can address them both together.
Faraday cages work because they are made of electrically conductive materials as opposed to magnetic materials.
You fill it out once and it will send letters to your representatives and you don't even have to buy a postage stamp or make a phone call! Peter Vincent Pry's assessment that Congress pass the SHIELD Act, which would, according to them, keep the above scenario from happening to us, or, more specifically, being done to us.
The Sun can hit us with powerful EMP pulses, as well, that can cause dangerous geomagnetic storms, including something really scary called a geomagnetic superstorm.
NORAD was housed within the mountain for much of the bi-polar standoff, the organisation’s systems scanning the skies for sign of an impending Soviet nuclear attack.
Although surge protection with fast enough clamping times exists, it is not typically used since it’s more expensive and more commonly occurring surges are much slower than E1.
The larger the cage, the more important the ground is to prevent anyone from being shocked.
Current will take the path of least resistance, so arcing large gaps will not be an issue unless the flow of the current through the cage’s conductive skin is impeded like in the example of the ammo can where paint along the lid to can contact surfaces and the rubber gasket should be removed.
The level of difficulty of protecting the shed's contents would increase if it is connected to outside power.
A couple of years back we learned about new threats to spacecraft from "killer electrons." I think the important thing to take away is that the USSR was ahead of us in EMP research when we signed the high altitude test ban and most of what we think we know is largely theoretical. If you still have questions or if it raises additional questions, I'd be happy to answer those too.
Maybe we could even talk the editor into publishing a part III covering vehicles or a companion article to an existing Survivopedia article on protecting autos from EMP. A steel box or "cage" basically stops the inward flow of the magnetic field much the same as if it was placed in flowing water, it would take on the same temperature of the water while shielding the contents from getting wet.
Faraday cages protect their contents from external electrical fields but magnetic fields penetrate them, and that's fine. They have a non-conductive layer on the inside so all you have to do is place your gadgets inside, get rid of excess air and zip the bag shut. One of these, called the Carrington Event, occured in 1859, and it was anything but pleasant. Earlier this week, officials announced that sensitive communications equipment for the US military would be moved to the complex in a $700 million refit to protect it from EMP. If you use aluminum foil for the conductive skin, be sure that there is plenty of foil on foil overlap and that the pieces seal tightly to each other.
For a cage protecting an entire building, for instance, a proper ground is strongly recommended.
You can catch up with Cache teaching EMP survival at survival expos, teaching SERE to ex-pats and vagabonds in South America or getting in some dirt time with the primitive skills crowd in a wilderness near you.
Since aluminum does not become magnetized, it does not stop the flow of the magnetic field.
EMP damages electronics by inducing high voltages in them as opposed to exposing them to a magnetic field. Quantifiable standards must be established and used to properly qualify the claims of products and so on.

So a Faraday bag can protect electronic contents from electrostatic discharge or EMP, yet you can't stick magnets to them. As must be the philosophy of Faraday bag manufacturers, since they don't seem to make products with more than about 40dB shielding, if you aren't right under a nuclear EMP you could get by with less shielding since some shielding is definitely better than no shielding and not every single device will be damaged. Although small batteries of a given type (such as AA) may look the same on the outside, many differences exist on the inside. They only came online within the last few years because of the congressional investigations into the EMP threat. THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE.
Tests at NASA show up to 49 dB of protection (Average 45 dB) but don't know if the batteries also need to be protected. So does whether or not the battery is installed in a device, the length of conductors in the device, it's conductivity, whether or not it is connected to the grid or other long conductors, whether or not the device is turned on, whether or not the device has fuses (and the properties of the fuses), the field strength of the EMP, the distance of the EMP, whether there is any shielding between the battery and the EMP, even the orientation of the battery and the shape of the earth's magnetic field lines between the battery and the source of the EMP will factor in.
I think that where the shielding could fall apart is if someone has developed a super-EMP weapon capable of generating EMPs of higher field strengths. Some small batteries have very vulnerable microelectronic charge controller circuitry in them. It's a safe bet that newer battery designs will make use of more microelectronics and become increasingly more vulnerable. Some batteries lack the conductor length to be affected by E1 or E2, but will still be vulnerable when installed in a device that is vulnerable or that is connected to the power grid. Soviet high altitude nuclear testing in Kazakhstan in 1962 damaged very simple diesel generators that lacked any electronics whatsoever, and those tests only yielded 10-20% of the EMP field strength that we are trying to protect against. So, I hope that if you read somewhere online that small batteries won't be affected by EMP, you will know better. I store my batteries in battery organizers and remove batteries from stored electronics in order to prevent oxidation on contacts and to prevent battery leakage from damaging the the electronics. I store the organizers on top, inside Faraday cages, where they are easily rotated and maintained. Even if EMP wasn't a factor, I would still carry my batteries in organizers so they wouldn't short out on each other or other conductive gear.

Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley.
We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said.
People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories. The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.
However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour.
Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip.
If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects.
Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit.
The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months.
