Project Announcement: Evaluation of Aircraft High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) Life Cycle Testing and Test Facility Infrastructure (Project No. D2021-DEV0SN-0095.000)


We plan to begin the evaluation in February 2021. The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which DoD Program Managers for mission critical aircraft are planning and conducting high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) life cycle testing in accordance with DoD Instruction 3150.09, "The Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Survivability Policy," April 8, 2015. The evaluation will also determine whether HEMP testing facilities possess the necessary infrastructure to support mission critical aircraft life cycle testing. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
