Abstract

In this project I will outline the social and economic effects on American society resulting from a High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse attack. Based on the construction and analysis of a system dynamics model, the most effective way to minimize the effects of the HEMP attack would be a large electrical distribution capacity upgrade.
