Abstract : This study is concerned with the RF to optisonic bolometer, an instrument which will measure the susceptibility of the EED (electroexplosive device) to RF in terms of the resulting IR emission. Since the RF to optisonic bolometer is an instrument system that can measure infrared radiation, it will relate the bridge wire IR emission to temperature. Accordingly as the EED is subjected to RF radiations of different frequencies and intensities, this bolometer will indicate approaching dangerous temperature limits. It will provide the measuring capability necessary to test, specify necessary modifications, and then re-test the electroexplosive device for its evaluation as a possible electromagnetic hazard.
