Electronic controls for U.S. critical infrastructure, including the electric grid, also could be vulnerable to Chinese EMP arms, resulting in catastrophic losses, according to a new report on the threat.
According to the report, a 2020 military report states that China has a device called a high-powered magnetic pulse compressor that generates strong EMP pulses that can damage sensitive electronics. “This threshold indicates the sensor’s vulnerability to electromagnetic pulses in warfare scenarios,” the report said.
The electronic denial system also could be used as part of what the report calls China’s “neurostrike” weaponry – brain warfare attacks on people and entire populations. The authors of the paper stated in an earlier study that China’s military is a global leader in developing brain warfare technology.
Among the targets of EMP weapons are air traffic control systems, instrument landing and navigation systems and communications systems. “The potential devastation of an EMP attack on U.S. critical infrastructure is profound,” the report said. “The intertwined nature of these systems means that the failure of one could cascade to others.”
