  • IEMI Detection Systems : A Low Cost IEMI Detector

    Dawson, J.F.; Dawson, Linda; Flintoft, I.D.; Rebers;, L. (2015)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)

    Power-balance in the time-domain for IEMI coupling prediction

    Dawson, J F; Flintoft, I D; Marvin, A C; Robinson, M P; Dawson, L (2016)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    In this paper we describe the use of the power-balance technique to estimate coupling into enclosures in the time domain for the prediction of coupling of Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI). The time domain method allows the peak fields for pulsed waveforms to be estimated.

    A Cost-Efficient System for Detecting an Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI) Attack

    Dawson, J. F.; Flintoft, I. D.; Kortoći, P.; Dawson, Linda; Marvin, A. C.; Robinson, M. P.; Stojilović, Mirjana; Rubinstein, Marcos; Menssen, Benjamin; Garbe, Heyno; Hirschi, Werner; Rouiller, Loubna (2014)

    Strategies to improve Critical Infrastructures Robustness against the IEMI threat : a Review of relevant Standards and Guidelines on the topic

    Simio, Francesca De; Cillis, Francesca De; Fumagalli, Giustino; Maggio, Maria Carla De; Beek, Stefan van de; Dawson, John; Dawson, Linda; Setola, Roberto (2016)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    This paper aims to provide a brief overview of relevant standards, procedures and guidelines to standard bodies to manage the impact of the Intentional ElectroMagnetic Interference (IEMI) threat. It also provides guidelines for CI operators on how to reduce their exposure on IEMI hazards.

    The European Project STRUCTURES : Challenges and Results

    Beek, Stefan van de; Dawson, John; Dawson, Linda; Flintoft, Ian David; Garbe, Heyno; Leferink, Frank; Menssen, Benjamin; Mora, Nicolas; Rachidi, Farhad; Righero, Marco; Rubinstein, Marcos; Stojilović, Mirjana (2015)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    The project STRUCTURES, funded by the European Union, started in July 2012 to study problems related to the emerging threats of electromagnetic attacks to critical infrastructures. Partners of the team have worked to list possible threats, identify the main characteristics of the critical infrastructures our way of living depends on, test current protection strategies with different simulation and measurement techniques, and condensate the results in guidelines accessible to an audience wider...

    Vulnerability analysis of the wireless infrastructure to intentional electromagnetic interference

    van de Beek, G.S. (2016)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    Contemporary society is greatly dependent upon a set of critical infrastructures (CIs) providing security and quality of life. Electronic systems control the safety-critical functioning of most CIs, and these electronic systems are susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI). A threat to the infrastructures is that adversaries, such as terrorists, could disrupt the functioning by using electromagnetic (EM) sources. This is defined as intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI). The ...

    Circuit and Electromagnetic Modelling of a low cost IEMI Sensor

    Dawson, John Frederick; Flintoft, Ian David; Rebers, Lauritz; Camp, Michael; Schmitz, Juergen; Jung, Markus (2014)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    The design of a low cost broadband Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI) detector and antenna to achieve a flat frequency response over a broad range is considered. SPICE simulation of the antenna, detector and low power log-amplifier circuit is used to predict the detector performance. The SPICE Antenna model is derived from numerical electromagnetic simulation. Simulations are compared with measured performance.

    Intentional Electromagnetic Interference Effects in Cyber-Physical Systems

    Dawson, J F (2015)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    This paper gives an overview of the possible effects of Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI) on Cyber-Physical systems. Examples of a range of attacks and possible countermeasures are presented.

    The STRUCTURES Project : Strategies for The impRovement of critical infrastrUCTUre Resilience to Electromagnetic attackS

    Dawson, John F (2013)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    The EU Framework 7 programme STRUCTURES is one of two EU funded projects to bring together existing research in the area of Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI), identifying innovative awareness and protection strategies, and providing guidelines for end-users and policy makers to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure. This presentation gives an overview of the STRUCTURES project and opportunities for potential end-users to participate.

    Protection strategy against IEMI for wireless communication infrastructures

    van de Beek, G.S.; Stojilovic, Mirjana; Mora, Nicolas; Rubinstein, Marcos; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad; Leferink, Frank Bernardus Johannes (2016)
    Projects: EC | STRUCTURES (285257)
    In this paper, we present a methodology for estimating the protection levels of critical equipment against IEMI. We apply the method to a wireless communication infrastructure, but it can be applied to any critical infrastructure. The required protection levels that need to be implemented are determined by analyzing the susceptibility of the victim, and the threat level associated with a specific IEMI scenario. Based on the required protection levels, possible protection strategies are identi...
