Abstract
TechFlow Scientific, a division of TechFlow Inc., will leverage over a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a full assessment of any test & evaluation application. They include: propagation of the HPM weapon energy to the target, interaction of that energy with the target to include inter-cavity coupling, and finally the effect that induced currents and voltages have on the system, subsystem, or component. The tool will provide for the intrinsically stochastic nature of HPM effects, while offering users an intuitive and simple interface with which to assess the vulnerability of US systems to HPM attack, or, conversely, HPM weapons system effectiveness.
