Abstract : The development is presented of a high temperature plse forming network for use in radar modulators. The investigation was concerned with: 91) various characteristics of impregnants and insulating materials from which a pulse forming network could be constructed; (2) design techniques utilizing the characteristics of new materials selected as result of testing; (3) constructing models using the selected materials and testing these models under the applicable specifications to determine parameters for the final design; (4) constructed and tested units in compliance with the specification. The design met all electrical requirements but exhibited a partial failure under environmental conditions (vibration). Recommendations for correction of the design are given. (Author)
