    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US strategy consultancy Booz Allen Hamilton received a $10 million US Air Force contract to explore new uses for high power electromagnetics (HPEM) and cyber electronic warfare (EW) applications, the Department of Defense said in a press release.

    “Booz Allen Hamilton [of] McLean, Virginia, has been awarded a $10,000,000… contract for high power electromagnetics (HPEM) and cyber electronic warfare (EW) applications,” the release stated on Tuesday.

    The company will provide study opportunities where HPEM technologies can be used to complement or enhance capabilities of the cyber and electronic warfare “communities,” the Defense Department explained.

    “This includes conduct experiments that enhance the understanding of how HPEM technologies can be used for cyber and EW missions,” the announcement added.
