Paper Abstract

The purpose of the experiment is to demonstrate missile-like electromagnetic pulses. More specifically, this is a program to build and test devices capable of launching electromagnetic missiles. I Because a missile-like electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) involves transients with rise times under 100 ps, the measurement of short pulses is essential. The program must measure the EMP accurately enough to confirm the slow decay of the energy and provide the means for improving the design of the EM-missile launcher. After adopting the newly designed transmitting antenna (V-conical antenna) and receiving antenna Pantenna), the entire system is found to work properly up to 10 GHz. The preliminary results show that the energy of an ENV launched from an EM-missile launcher does have the property of slow decay.
