Abstract : This report supplied support to the Harry Diamond Laboratories on the effects of IEMP-induced transient pulses on the HOST detector amplifier. Computer simulation techniques were used to model the circuit's response to 1-microsecond current pulses injected at the selected circuit locations. The most vulnerable subcircuit within the amplifier was found to be the detector bias power supply. Permanent damage was predicted to occur at the bias control input point for a cable response, resulting in the pickup of a 61-V, 0.064-A pulse, or greater.
