Submission + - UK In Danger From Electromagnetic Bomb, Says Defence Secretary (techweekeurope.co.uk)

Electromagnetic Pulse devices mimic the result of a solar flare or a nuclear explosion in the atmosphere, creating a storm of electromagnetic radiation, which can break mobile networks and satellite systems. Any preparation for olar storms must also consider the possibility of deliberate electromagnetic events, warns Hammond."
