Research Institution

Since there is no clear final configuration, ASR has chosen to contemplate a design concept to be accomplished during a potential Phase II award along with a Phase I work plan to demonstrate feasibility of the Phase II concept. ASR proposes to develop an HPM source for deployment into the MLRS M26 payload bay. Multiple, parallel FEGs will charge a single quarter wave oscillator to 100+ kV and each FEG will be fired in order to accomplish the 100+ Hz pulse repetition rate. When the oscillator is fully charged, an internal switch closes and the oscillator will begin to oscillate with the chosen antenna load to generate a wideband radiated signal.
