Dr. William Radasky

Dr. William Radasky has served as President of the Metatech Corporation since the founding of the company in 1984. We invited him to explain the vulnerabilities of the electrical power grid, the remedies and solutions that are on the way, and the complexity involved in prioritizing this issue at a governmental level.

Dr. William Radasky has played a central role in the development of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and related electromagnetic environment specifications applicable to defense electronic systems. He is particularly well-known for his continuing contributions to EMP/SREMP research, a field in which he has been active since 1968.

Dr. William Radasky has authored over 400 publications on EM subjects and holds the following academic degrees: B.S., Air Force Academy; M.S., University of New Mexico; and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, University of California at Santa Barbara. He was elected an EMP Fellow in 1988, and is a Fellow of the IEEE. He was the Chairman for the IEC Advisory Committee on EMC (ACEC) from 1997-2008 and is the chairman of the IEC SC77C, which deals with HEMP/HPEM standards for commercial systems.

    Here is a man who was involved in weapons programmes since acquiring a military based education talking about the threat to international communication systems. Does he not realise that his chosen career within a military academy is in part a contribution to the problem of weaponising our living space?
    What trifling nonsense to head up an international commission on standardising test and protection procedures for civil systems against EMI and EMP abusers when the US is The Major Weapons R&D. Who do you think the Commission is going to protect? Afghanistan and Pakistan military communication systems?
    All Weapons Development is run by Psychos with a multiple personality disorder

      So your response is to put your head in the sand?

      Looks like Dr. Radasky and the other people who have served in the military are wasting their time on a portion of our society. If the grid is taken out by North Korea or Iran, what does Mr. Golding think will happen? There are bad people out there who want to do us harm. Mr. Golding, these people are protecting you and you family. Our enemies are not as ignorant as you seem to think. I want other readers to recognize that Mr. Golding is using one of the Alynski Rules for Radicals. This is the rule book for leftists.
