Abstract : This report is the culmination of a multi-year manufacturing technology program sponsored by the Electronics Division of Wright Laboratory Manufacturing Technology Directorate (WL/MTM). The program was jointly conducted by Northrop Grumman Electronics and Integration Division as the prime contractor and Hughes Aircraft Company Technology Support Division as the principal subcontractor. The thrust of this program was to improve the reliability of High Voltage Power Supplies (HVPS). This was accomplished by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the materials, components and processes used to produce HVPS. To demonstrate the benefits of the program the lessons learned were incorporated into two existing HVPS, ALQ-135 and AMRAAM. Several of these upgraded high voltage assemblies were fabricated and tested to measure the benefits resulting from the changes. The report is published in four volumes. The first volume is a summary of the technical activity and highlights of the program. The remaining three volumes provide the specific program and procedural details and reference information generated in performance of the effort. This report, Volume IV - Reference Information, contains specific construction details on Model Test Structures used throughout the program as well as test results obtained from the various material and component studies.
