Abstract : We live in a modem world supported by large, complex networks. Examples range from financial markets to communication and transportation systems, and all manners of networks pertinent to the mission of the DoD. In many realistic situations the flow of physical quantities in the network, as characterized by the loads on nodes, is important. In today's modem world where sensitive electronics are omnipresent, High Power Electromagnetic (HPEM) threats represent an emerging threat that could disrupt nodes, thereby interrupting the functionality of the complex network. This final report describes an overarching paradigm for modeling such threats. Suggestions for future research, based on deficiencies found in existing approaches, comprise the key conclusions of this study.
