Abstract
Not Available The proposed effort will develop and demonstrate an imbedded protection technique for integrated electromagnetic protection of military systems and COTS equipment. The proposed imbedded protection technique will apply to all electromagnetic environments but this research effort will focus on mitigating high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) and high power microwave (HPM) effects. Under Phase I, the theoretical foundation for the new hardening technique will be thoroughly developed. This theoretical effort will leverage off of MRC's recent advances in the design of high power microwave loads using multiple tuned cavity chokes. The resulting theory will be applied to several typical system topologies to study the feasibility of imbedding the penetration port protection into the enclosure port. A complete design methodology will be developed and documented. This design methodology will be utilized in the Phase II demonstration effort where full scale imbedded protection devices will be produced and tested. The anticipated result of the proposed approach is the development of a new protection technique which will integrate penetration port hardening into the enclosure port (e.g. shield). If completely successful, the new protection technique will be imbedded in the enclosure port but the concept will also be developed for non-imbedded applications.
