Abstract : Fabrication of transmission lines which will pass an audio firing signal to an electroexplosive device while acting as an attenuator to radio frequency signals which may be picked up from shipboard equipment was begun. In addition to the fabrication of lines, several lines were built with no attempt at preliminary analysis. Instead, fabrication was initiated with practical aspects of construction in mind. An analysis of a line which utilizes reflection to increase the over-all attenuation was partially completed. The line considered consists of alternate sections of high and low impedance. The effect of a two-layer line upon the firing signal is also reported. The signal voltages necessary when either a battery or a charged capacitor is used as the signal source are derived for various load impedances. Indications are that this type of line should not degrade the signal to such an extent so as to render the electroexplosive device incapable of being fired. (Author)
