US develops electromagnetic weapons to fight the war of the future

According to the SCMP agency, the development of electromagnetic weapons and a system of protection against them is underway in the United States.

Electromagnetic weapon (EMP) – a weapon in which a magnetic field is used to impart an initial velocity to a projectile, or the energy of electromagnetic radiation is used directly to hit a target. EMP weapons can put pressure on the enemy without direct casualties.

Based on an analysis of US government reports, military documents, and laws passed by the US Congress since 2017, experts concluded that the US has incorporated protection against EMP threats into its national security strategy.

In particular, in 2019, former US President Donald Trump signed a decree on the coordination of national efforts to protect against EMR, and a few months later, Congress passed a law to increase the budget for this program.

It is emphasized that this is necessary to protect against the most important information from EMP strikes, it should be roughly ready by 2032.

The authors of the article believe that this will change the balance of power in favor of one particular country. In order to resist, the requirements for telecommunication nodes and power distribution structures will gradually change, taking into account the introduction of protective mechanisms.
