Regular submitted papers in the 17 topical areas of HPEM will return as an integral part of this year’s technical program.  Mr. Radasky will soon provide an overview of the featured papers.


The Symposium concludes on Friday, July 19, with a Technical Tour of ETS-Lindgren’s world headquarters in Cedar Park, Texas, just north of Austin.  Tour participants will see 11,000 sq m (120,000 sq ft) of manufacturing, sales, service, and administration space.  In addition, the facility features the largest outdoor open-area test site in the United States.  ETS-Lindgren’s A2LA-Accredited Calibration Laboratory (Lab Cert #1207.01) is equipped with calibrated instrumentation traceable to National Metrology Institutes (NMI), several anechoic chambers, test cells, and an 80 m x 50 m (262 ft x 164 ft) welded steel ground plane for antenna calibration.  A view of products specially designed and manufactured for protection against HPEM, high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP), and intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) will be included in the Technical Tour.  An ‘all-you-can-eat’ Texas-style lunch buffet rounds out the tour experience.


Please note exhibition space at GlobalEM 2024 is nearly sold out.  Those interested in sponsorship and exhibit opportunities at the GlobalEM 2024 Symposium should contact Janet O’Neil at janet.oneil@ets-lindgren.com or +1 512-531-2676.  “Please check the sponsor and exhibit page to learn more about the varied opportunities to showcase your company’s products and services to this highly targeted HPEM market,” encouraged Ms. O’Neil.
