Abstract

The proposed technology is related to the AFWERX Reimagining Energy Challenge (Energy-based Weapons), and was selected for early evaluation in that program. Aerial vehicles face a variety of threats in the battlespace, many of which can be disrupted, defeated or destroyed by the application of microwave energy. We propose a compact, frequency-agile, high power microwave source for deployment on current and future air vehicles, to enable the disruption and defeat of threats such as radar-guided missiles or drone swarms. The HPM generator has its own electrical power source, and is capable of high repetition rates, and multiple peaks per cycle (regenerative). Additionally, versions of this technology can be used for wireless power beaming.
