Abstract:

ONE OF THE TECHNIQUES USED IN PROTECTING ORDNANCE FROM ACCIDENTAL INITIATION BY RADIO FREQUENCY CURRENTS IS TO PLACE A LOW-PASS FILTER IN FRONT OF THE ELECTROEXPLOSIVE DEVICE. The task of designing filters for this purpose, using the procedures based upon transmission line theory, is tedious and difficult to realize. An analysis is presented of some elementary low-pass filters which points out implications of their losscharacteristic equations for the design of radiation-hazard-suppressing filters. Author
