In "9:02" an electromagnetic pulse fries everything with a circuit board at 9:02 pm, plunging the town into darkness. Before the power goes out, the citizens of Jericho watch as minutemen missiles are launched into the sky.
Rob is seen in his basement sending an IM to someone that says "are they ours or theirs?". This page is to give info on EMP to create theories that may help in season 2.
The range of an EMP can vary based on the bust altitude.
It is possible to have an EMP without an explosion. bombs can be designed just to give off an EMP
Non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse (NNEMP) is an electromagnetic pulse generated without use of nuclear weapons. There are a number of devices to achieve this objective, ranging from a large low-inductance capacitor bank discharged into a single-loop antenna or a microwave generator to an explosively pumped flux compression generator. To achieve the frequency characteristics of the pulse needed for optimal coupling into the target, wave-shaping circuits and/or microwave generators are added between the pulse source and the antenna. A vacuum tube particularly suitable for microwave conversion of high energy pulses is the vircator.
NNEMP generators can be carried as a payload of bombs and cruise missiles, allowing construction of electromagnetic bombs with diminished mechanical, thermal and ionizing radiation effects and without the political consequences of deploying nuclear weapons.
NNEMP generators also include large structures built to generate EMP for testing of electronics to determine how well it survives EMP. In addition, the use of ultra-wideband radars can generate EMP in areas immediately adjacent to the radar this phenomenon is only partly understood.

...the heartland from launching further ICBMs. Any group could launch minutemans for any reason. Any foreign power or foreign-power coalitions would hit the u.s. with an emp just to prevent more american crazies from launching icbms. It actually was very nice for the foreign powers to only use emps in us. In "Crimson Tide," we were considering nuking a part of Russia...
Do you find this valuable?
