ETS-Lindgren fuels the utilities industry by providing high-powered solutions that protect both workers and critical energy infrastructures.
For the workers who climb and work around broadcast and transmission towers, our team makes tools that measures their exposure to electromagnetic field, ensuring their levels doesn’t surpass safe limits. For the utility companies, ETS-Lindgren assembles devices used to survey the towers and to protect them. Over the last 70 years, our skilled technical team has produced more than 10,000 shield systems worldwide that guard switchyard relays, substations and transformers from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks. The threat to take down critical systems and infrastructure with Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI; high power radio frequency weapons) is a growing concern. Even lightning can generate localized electromagnetic pulse (EMP) surges powerful enough to take out critical infrastructure or grid systems. While you may not be able to prevent an EMP event, ETS-Lindgren can help you control the outcome.
When the companies who maintain the world’s power grids need specialized energy management expertise, the first place they turn is ETS-Lindgren.
This paper is intended address the growing confusion in the industry over Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF) design and performance requirements and to bring some clarity to various documents and performance requirements from a RF shielding perspective to aid in the design and construction of these facilities.
