Research Institution
It is desirable for the standard Intersystem EMC electromagnetic environments that aircraft must operate in and demonstrate survivability of prior to production and deployment to be a single environment that provides both peak and average field level tests at the same time (instead of splitting the standard RF environment into a peak and an average field level test) just like the aircraft would see when deployed. We propose to develop under this SBIR a device and system that shall meet both the peak and average E-field levels at each of the four standard environments given within the MIL-STD-464 and MIL-HDBK-235 capable of generating a peak of 100 Kilowatts and average field of 1000 Watts. With our proposed approach, the extremely high peak power is still produced while at the same time the desired average power is also produced by a single device. The device and associated system shall also provide an illumination area of at least two foot by two foot on target at not less than ten feet separation distance. In addition, the proposed device approach minimizes the power supply requirement to be lower than for any other types of equivalent vacuum electronics devices including traveling wave tube (TWTs).
