Abstract:
The proposed effort is to develop a frequency and waveshape agile pulse forming system. The pulse forming system is based on a Blumlein topology and allows a wide range of waveforms to be generated from a fixed set of mechanical hardware.

Compact HPM Sources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Michael D. Abdalla, President
Award Amount: $98,888.00
Abstract:
The MATRIX oscillator was developed as a tunable wideband HPM source for use by the AFRL in threat testing. The fundamental physics of hydrogen insulation used in the MATRIX oscillator as well as the overall topology limit the voltage-frequency-Q (VFQ) product of the current system. Through the… More
