Countdown to GlobalEM 2024 July 14 to 19 in Austin, Texas!

Symposium Attracts World’s Experts in High-Power Electromagnetics


CEDAR PARK, Texas, June 6, 2024 – The SUMMA Foundation and ETS-Lindgren will partner as co-hosts of the in-person GlobalEM 2024 Symposium to be held on July 14 to 19, 2024, in Austin, Texas, at the AT&T Conference Center.  The Conference Center is adjacent to the beautiful University of Texas at Austin campus, near many restaurants and shops downtown, as well as close to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.  ETS-Lindgren’s dynamic team of Customer Relations Manager Janet O’Neil and Subject Matter Expert and Global Marketing Director Joel Kellogg are organizing the Symposium.  In addition, industry expert William (Bill) A. Radasky, Ph.D., President and Managing Engineer of Metatech Corporation, is chairing the Technical Program with the able assistance of Technical Program Vice Chair Nicolas Mora, Ph.D., Research and Extension Directorate Advisor at the National University of Colombia. 


“It’s countdown time until the Symposium starts in six weeks!” noted Ms. O’Neil.  “We are very excited about the Technical Program with nearly 60 Papers and six in-depth Tutorials, plus our Keynote and Plenary Presentations.  Drs. Radasky and Mora have worked extremely hard in putting together an outstanding Technical Program that has attracted an international gathering of industry experts with speakers from the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.  Their participation documents the importance of High-Power Electromagnetics (HPEM) to the global scientific community.  In addition to the technical program, fantastic social events are planned to inspire networking,” she added.  The Preliminary Program at a Glance is available here.


“We have a few key dates and information to pass along,” said Ms. O’Neil.  “Since the Symposium is coming up quickly, please take note of these important deadlines.”



Regarding the social events, the Symposium begins with a Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, July 14.  A second social event, the Gala Banquet, will be held on Wednesday evening, July 17.  The Technical Program will be held from Monday, July 15, to Friday, July 19.  Invited speaker presentations and papers are scheduled from Monday, July 15, to Thursday, July 18; a Technical Tour of ETS-Lindgren is planned for Friday, July 19.


During the Technical Tour of ETS-Lindgren’s world headquarters in Cedar Park, Texas, participants will learn about the company’s manufacturing capabilities for products supporting the R&D relevant to GlobalEM 2024 Symposium attendees.  Highlights will include touring ETS-Lindgren’s expanded production line for radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) / high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) power, signal (sensor), data, and control line filters.  The RF Filter product line includes EMP Commercial and Defense Tempest Powerline Filters featuring the popular Model LRX with EMP protection.  The RF Filter product line also includes ETS-Lindgren’s HEMP/ EMP Commercial and Defense Non-Tempest Powerline Filters with Red Edge™ Technology to protect against damage to electronic equipment and loss of data caused by a sudden and intense EMP and intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI).  Tour attendees will appreciate knowing ETS-Lindgren is the only manufacturer to have its complete Red Edge Filter product line acceptance-tested to the requirements of MIL-STD-188-125 by the independent Little Mountain Test Facility operated by Boeing at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah.  View ETS-Lindgren’s educational brochure Top 10 Considerations for RF and Facility Power Line Filters for more information on this product line.  Contact ETS-Lindgren via phone +1 512-531-6400 or email for assistance with your TEMPEST, SCIF, IEMI, and EMP protection requirements. 


In conjunction with the Symposium, Ms. O'Neil spoke with Dr. Radasky in the most recent episode of her new podcast “Industry Insights with Janet O’Neil.”  Dr. Radasky, who has helmed the Technical Program for many editions of the GlobalEM Symposium, shared his expertise on the considerable increase in HEMP activity as evident by the numerous papers and workshops on the topic at leading conferences worldwide, including GlobalEM 2024.


The podcast, in which Ms. O’Neil talks with experts throughout the EMP, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), wireless, acoustic, RF microwave, and healthcare industries about the latest developments and exciting events, launched earlier this year.  “We’re thrilled to have Janet, our own industry expert, sit down with other professionals to explore all aspects of the incredible technological growth we’re seeing around the globe.  Thoughts from these professionals as to where we are now and where we’re headed also guides ETS-Lindgren, as an industry leader, in honing our own products and services,” enthused Mr. Kellogg.
