Abstract
This proposal details the development of a variable pulsed power circuit and custom load that simulates the audio, visual, and tactile response of a variety of explosive devices. The system operates by tailoring the voltage and current discharge profile through the stimulus generator at the operating point that best matches the signature of the explosive device. The device resets itself and can be operated multiple times to mimic various explosive devices and distances in a single training session. The system will not harm the either the trainee or the simulation facility and will leave no trace of its operation such as spent projectiles, paint or other debris.
