  1. A Gatling Marx Generator System for Directed Energy Defense and Radar Detection of Cruise and Ballistic Missiles

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    "Directed Energy and RF weapons methods for defending against cruise and ballistic missiles rely on spark gap-based systems. RF weapons rely on two parameters for effects against electronic systems; extremely high electric fields for range coveragehigh repetition rates for energy on-target heating of electronic components. High voltage pulse power systems are typically spark gap based sources t ...

  3. A Compact Pulse Power Module for Missile Defense Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    "Missile defense platforms will require a variety of electric weapons for a balanced attack defense. The integration of multiple electric weapons into a single vehicle platform requires very compact power systems and/or reconfigurable power systemsoptimize space and weight. For example, the same prime power source can be reconfigured to supply energy for vehicle propulsion and for hypervelocity e ...

  4. A Pulsed Microwave Radar Source For Seeker Missile Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    "Kinetic Kill systems, such as Seeker missiles, rely on Continuous Wave (CW) microwave signals or Infrared (IR) technologies for tracking entry vehicles. These systems are coupled with a volume/range tradeoff and have not proven to be a reliable means oftracking missile threats. Common reasons include their susceptibility to countermeasures and their long processing time of information. Both sys ...

  10. An Integrated Portable High-Voltage Ultra-Wideband Transmitter

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High-voltage Ultra-Wideband transmitters are a key component in a wide variety of systems involving directed energy weapons, UWB radar, and secure communications. These applications require a UWB transmitter that combines a portable high-gain antenna witha fast-risetime high-voltage triggered source that is battery powered. Until recently, both the antennas and sources were too large and heavy to ...
