Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A LOW COST, MINIATURE HIGH VOLTAGE SWITCH. WE PROPOSE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM BY DESIGNING A SWITCH THAT UTILIZES THE SPARK GAP METHOD. LOW COST AND EASY REPRODUCTION WILL BE INCORPORATED IN THE DESIGN. CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO INSURE RELIABILITY OF THE SWITCH. THE SWITCH MUST FUNCTION PROPERLY AT EXTREME TEMPERATURES AND OVER YEARS OF MILITARY STORAGE CONDITIONS. RELIABILITY MUST ALSO BE CONSIDERED IN THE DESIGN OF THE TRIGGERING CONFIGURATION AND COMPONENTS. DEVELOPING A SWITCH THAT IS REUSABLE IS ALSO A DESIRABLE CHARACTERISTIC AND A DESIGN THAT CAN BE INCORPORATED IN A FLEX PRINT ASSEMBLY MAY ALSO BE ACHIEVED. BY UTILIZING OUR COMPLETE DIELECTRIC LABORATORY AND THE TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE OF OUR RESEARCH STAFF, WE WILL DESIGN THE BEST SWITCH POSSIBLE.
