Abstract
High Power Microwave (HPM) systems capable of generating gigawatts of power for pulse lengths of microseconds have significant military applications. The military utility would be even greater if such systems could be packaged for placement in current Army mobile platforms (long range and short range), on UAVs, or in aircraft. Previous simulations have shown that the proposed device is capable of generating gigawatt pulses in compact configurations compatible with long pulse operation. We propose to develop an HPM source that will provide gigawatt powers for pulse lengths of 1 microsecond or greater. The configuration provides flexibility in selecting a center frequency, which can be anywhere in the 1-10 GHz range, while still providing the desired energy per pulse.
