Abstract : This report discusses technical progress made during FY76 under the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA) sponsored Tactical Environment Multiple Systems Evaluation Program (TEMSEP). The long and short range goals of the program are presented with particular emphasis on the topics of instrumentation in an ionizing radiation environment, basic phenomena associated with the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generation within the nuclear source region, and laboratory simulation of the electromagnetic environment associated with the nearby (endoatmospheric) detonation of a nuclear weapon.
