Abstract : The text describes instrumentation and test techniques that are applicable for testing systems to determine the hardness of electromagnetic pulse (EMP). The text describes energy sources, simulation techniques, test instrumentation, and testing techniques. Emphasis is on testing that can be accomplished by engineers with knowledge of electromagnetics and circuits. Complicated systems that require special expertise are described only to acquaint the reader with their characteristics. This text is intended to supplement the testing portion of DNA 2772T 'DNA EMP Awareness Course Notes.' (Author)
