Abstract
THE PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A HARDENED GUNN VOLTAGE CONTROLLED OSCILLATOR (VCO) CAPABLE OF SURVIVAL TO A LEVEL OF AT LEAST 50,000 G WITH A GOAL OF 100,000 G. SUCH AN OSCILLATOR HAS POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS TO PROJECTILES OR MISSILES WHICH EXPERIENCE VERY HIGH SHOCK DURING FIRING (LAUNCH). THE DESIGN INVOLVES USE OF A RIGID CHOKE STRUCTURE WHICH PREVENTS TOP LOADING ON THE GUNN AND VARACTOR DIODES DURING SHOCK STRESS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM PROVIDES FOR STUDY OF TWO DIFFERENT VCO CONFIGURATIONS, FABRICATIONS, LABORATORY AND SHOCK TESTING, DESIGN AND FABRICATION ITERATION, RETESTING AND REPORTING OF RESULTS.
