Abstract : The requirement for suppression of RF energy in ordnance ignition circuits may be stated in terms of the insertion loss of the network, which, inserted between the source (the equivalent generator) and the load (the resistance of the electro-explosive device, or EED), will limit RF energy at the EED to the tolerable level. The optimum theoretical treatment of RF suppression deals with the minimum of parameters and involves the minimum of mathematical difficulty. This report presents a method of analysis consistent with these goals. Simple formulas are given for computing insertion loss with a generator of known characteristics, and for computing the minimum insertion loss with a generator of variable or unknown characteristics.
