ABSTRACT: The proposed phase II effort would work to establish new advanced insulation techniques and their corresponding design guidelines that could be employed to reduce the volume existing pulsed power systems, improve their reliability, and possibly improve their mechanical integrity. Additionally, the design of a new pulser is proposed, which will be based on the insulation schemes identified and quantified over the course of the phase I and part of the phase II study. The deliverables for the phase II effort are anticipated to be: a peer reviewed publication summarizing the insulation schemes a set of design guidelines that explain the application of the insulation schemes a pulser housing and a liner to assist AFRL with their own pulser miniaturization effort BENEFIT: The proposed research should work toward the realization of pulsed power systems that are deployable and reliable. This would facilitate the integration of pulsed power systems into small platforms such as vehicles and aircraft.
