A State Senator recently asked in Committee "If we harden our state's Electrical Grid against the effects of Solar GMD, will that take care of the HEMP threat?"
Answer from our CEO: "Unfortunately, it does not."
Jaxon is working with key national leaders in the private and political sector(s) to transition the technology from 25-30 years of lessons learned in the Department of Defense to our nation's commercial sector to accellerate efforts associated with power grid hardening.
Addressing Solar E3/GMD by itself and its effect on transformers (for example), does not negate the need to evaluate, test and upgrade the other Generation and Distribution equipment exposed to E1 and E2 environs on control and SCADA devices. Technically, there are some differences between nuclear E3 and Solar E3 environs, but many of the survivability and hardening treatments are similar.
The power grid has some natural resiliency. Jaxon is just beginning to work with several Power Companies and their suppliers to enhance system resiliency, improve survivability, and reduce the risk to their equipment and the US population.
