Faraday Bags and EMP Protection: Protecting Your Electronics in an Age of Growing Electromagnetic Threats

Protection Against an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Is More Important Than Ever

An electromagnetic pulse, referred to as an EMP, is a burst of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation that can occur naturally or be man-made. This powerful surge of energy can cause widespread damage to electronic devices, leading to permanent loss of data, malfunction, or complete failure of the affected equipment. With the increasing threat of EMP attacks and solar flares, protecting electronic devices from this harmful phenomenon is more important than ever.

Faraday bags, cages, and RF shielding enclosures are simple solutions to protect against EMP damage. These enclosures are made from conductive material, typically metal-coated fabric, that creates an electromagnetic shield around the contents of the bag. When a device is placed inside a faraday bag, the conductive material (such as TitanRF™ Faraday Fabric) blocks the EMP’s high-frequency waves from penetrating the bag, thus preventing damage to the device. Faraday bags come in different sizes and exterior materials, allowing you to choose the right bag to fit your device and provide the level of protection you need.

High-Shielding Performance That Is Lab Certified

Mission Darkness™ offers a growing selection of faraday bags, RF shielding enclosures, and DIY faraday cage supplies that have been lab-tested and certified MIL-STD 188-125 (compliant for high-altitude EMP resistance), as well as IEEE 299-2006 (shielding effectiveness standards).

The testing was completed by Keystone Compliance, an accredited regulatory compliance laboratory. This compliance measure not only ensures that the products shield against high-altitude electromagnetic pulses (HEMPs) and related occurrences, such as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), electrostatic discharges (ESDs), and solar flares, but provides concrete proof to the shielding ability and effectiveness of Mission Darkness products. It's important to be aware of the shielding specifications your faraday bag offers, to ensure it protects against EMPs, HEMPs, solar flares, and similar scenarios.
