Abstract

Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) proposes to develop a Multiple Pulse flash X-ray source which can be used to make high resolution X-ray movies of explosive and ballistic tests. The new source will allow researchers to capitalize on recent advances in very high speed cameras which allow high resolution images with many frames. DTI will extend our world-class pulsed power capabilities to this challenging application which requires extremely short high voltage pulses with high peak power. Solid-state pulse repeatability and reliability will allow DTI to update the electron beam performance required for the X-ray source. The combination of advanced source and cameras will increase the quality of data gathered in tests and should reduce the overall cost of explosive development testing.
