The work on developing electromagnetic absorption and shielding material began in 2012. Since then SMW team of scientists, along with two leading Estonian universities and one specialised Institute, have invested a significantamount of time studying existing weaponry and analyzing prospective optimized solutions based on SMW EMBloq technology.
Numerous scientific papers have been published, ex.:
A product has now been developed that accomplishes both missions:
– addresses emerging physical risk factors of EM radiation,
– delivers cutting-edge structural material for aerospace, sea and land vehicles.
In July 2019 SMW received a grant from the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Latvia to develop a lightweight shielding material to protect various types of vehicles from electromagnetic weapons, such as EMP and DEW.
R&D work is ongoing.
EMBloq provides a major advantage and added value, as compared to similar products that are in existence, because of the negligible near-zero carbon footprint it provides – delivering environmentally net-positive effect
EMBloq is fully in line with the European smart specialization strategy, and it delivers additional regional benefits:
EMbloq production is environmentally friendly. Additionally, vehicles that employ EMBloq panels will be lighter-weight than in the cases of using other protective materials of analogues function. This results in reduction of fuel consumption and respectively of CO2 emissions.
