OSA Today: EMP Wars and Managing EMP Protection

June 23, 2022 |  Newsletters


Bringing you insights and news on how open secure automation is enabling digital transformation and revolutionary cost control

EMP Wars:
  National defense experts have been concerned about a nuclear-generated electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack since at least 2004. Is the threat real or is it science fiction?

Managing EMP Protection: While the risk of a massive EMP event crippling digital systems seems to be greater every day, there are limited-strike scenarios and relatively affordable ways to protect them.

Bedrock Updates MIL-STD 461G EMP Compliance: Bedrock Automation had tested OSA control system and power components for military standard compliance separately in 2016 and 2017. A newly released video documents their updated independent testing of a fully integrated ICS, representative of real-world requirements for control systems to be hardended to EMP.

The application allows users to manage certificates, view controller status and logs, and access OSA View from mobile devices. Check it out!
