Abstract: The danger of a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) is one of many threats that an Army facility must be capable of surviving. A standard method of testing the HEMP survivability of these facilities exists. However, it is not capable of being used in all situations. This feasibility study used a series of experimental test methods and unique antenna designs to evaluate more flexible methods. The findings indicate that several of the antennae tested have suitable dynamic range characteristics and that alternative system designs can be employed where space limitations and other factors preclude use of the standard method.
