Abstract

This paper presents analytical results of the High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) E1 and E2 coupling to an antenna system. HEMP is the effect caused by the detonation of a nuclear bomb in the upper atmosphere. The antenna system was modeled with the flexibility to support parametric trades relative to antenna height, cable length, and structure size. The coupling analysis was conducted using two software the Numerical Electromagnetic Code (NEC) and a transmission line model developed in MATLAB.
