Abstract:

ELECTROMAGNETIC SHOCK LINE IGBT SUBNANOSECOND PULSES SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY WILL DEVELOP A NEW INPUT CHARGING TECHNIQUE BY COMBINING INSULATED GATE BIPOLAR TRANSISTORS (IGBTs) AND BRANCHED MAGNETICS TECHNOLOGY WHICH WILL ALLOW OPERATION AT PULSE REPETITION RATES IN EXCESS OF 100,000 pps. IN PHASE 1, THE DESIGN VERIFICATION TESTING WILL BE DONE, ESTABLISHING 100,000 pps OPERATION OF THE COMMUTATOR MODULE AT THE FRONT END OF AN ELECTROMAGNETIC SHOCK LINE SYSTEM. A COMPACT LIGHTWEIGHT, 100 MW PEAK POWER ELECTROMAGNETIC SHOCK LINE SYSTEM BASED ON THIS ULTRA-HIGH REPETITION RATE WILL THEN BE BROUGHT TO FINAL ENGINEERING DESIGN. THIS SYSTEM WILL DELIVER SUBNANOSECOND PULSES HAVING RISETIMES OF LESS THAN 200 PICOSECONDS. APPLICATIONS INCLUDE HIGH RESOLUTION RADAR, ECM AND ECCM. LOW POWER VERSIONS (10-100MW PEAK) INCLUDE INTRUSION DETECTION AS WELL AS GROUND PENETRATING RADAR FOR DETECTING UTILITY LINES.
