What is a highaltitude burst?

A high altitude burst is typically a nuclear warfare term. It refers to when a nuclear bomb is detonated at very high altitude. This doesn't cause very much physical destruction, but it causes an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) burst that can destroy most electrical systems. This is especially dangerous because it can cause computer databases to fry, short-circuit equipment on planes and cars, and pretty much take out the infrastucture of a city.
