Portable generator electromagnetic pulse in the hands of hooligans

Now the military have electromagnetic weapons at their disposal, generating momentum and disabling enemy electronics. Military electronics in turn often has protection from EMI, which is not applicable to civil devices.

The day is not far off when the EM gun will be constructed in a compact "personal" form, but with a large radius of destruction (10-100 meters). Imagine what possibilities such weapons open up to cyber hooligans in the "smart city" of the future. After pressing the button in his pocket, the attacker (or a terrorist) will disable (temporarily or permanently) all surveillance cameras in the area, traffic lights, smartphones, augmented reality glasses and electronic parts of our future bodies.

Meanwhile, hooligans and specialists have access only to cell phones jammers and other such “interference” generators.

Jacob S Sorry, but even today, there exists ways and technology that can block the use of such devices. By 2040, I expect that most systems that are as important as stated will contain these safeguards against hooligans.
