Abstract : This report characterizes the time-domain electromagnetic field environment generated by the Army's Repetitive Electromagnetic Pulse Simulator (REPS). The REPS system is a free-field radiating 3OO-m "longwire" dipole antenna that is driven at the center by a 1-MV pulse generator. The RF environment generated by REPS was characterized in terms of two heights (1 and 2 m), field uniformity, symmetry about the antenna, and wavefront planarity. Based on measured data, "usable" and "recommended" test volumes have been defined.
