Abstract
The objective of the proposed research and development work is to create the power conditioning needed for explosive driven pulsed power devices to properly drive various loads being considered as payloads for missiles and gun launched projectiles. The system we are proposing will be complete unit, to include all components necessary for operation: miniature explosive-driven primary power source, a corresponding impedance-matched miniature power-conditioning system, and a deployable antenna. The target overall diameter of the systems will be 25 mm, and the systems are to be g-force hardened. These microwave generators are intended to radiate a series of ultra-wideband pulses from tens to hundred of megawatts in power, and the systems will be autonomous, simple, reliable in operation, inexpensive, and easily produced.
