Federal, State, and Private Initiatives to Achieve Preparedness Against an Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe

Grant Year: 2017

Peter Pry will explore how best to improve U.S. preparedness against a natural or man-made electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. He will work with federal policymakers, state legislatures and officials, and leaders of electrical utilities and other interested corporations to educate them about the EMP threat and possible solutions. He will also research and write analyses that describe progress and continuing obstacles to achieving EMP preparedness at the federal and state levels. The project’s findings will appear in a white paper, a book, and related briefings.
