Abstract
NO METHOD CURRENTLY EXISTS TO DIRECTLY RELATE DEVICE OUTPUT TO THE KNOWN INPUT NECESSARY FOR THE RELIABLE INITIATION OF THE NEXT DEVICE IN AN EXPLOSIVE TRAIN. THE OBJECT OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE TO PROVIDE AN ELECTRONIC SYSTEM TO MEASURE THE OUTPUTS OF EXPLOSIVE DEVICES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS OBJECTIVE. WE PROPOSE TO UTILIZE NEW PIEZO FILM TECHNOLOGY (PVDF) GAUGES TO MAKE THIS MEASUREMENT. ADDITIONALLY, SOME NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS WILL BE PERFORMED TO AID IN EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND INTERPRETATION.
