Abstract:

Effort during this initial period was assigned to planning the procedures to be followed in the component testing phase. A preliminary test scheme is developed, which will trigger the start of item evaluations. Means for forming half-cylinder attenuator assemblies were developed. These half-plugs are designed to be assembled to an EED to reduce its sensitivity to RF. Units presently developed increase the length of a MK 1 MOD 0 squib by about one third, and have about 16 db attenuation at 200 mc. There was some progress in the development of instrumentation. A new system for evaluating matched attenuation, and means to measure more accurately the power delivered to a squib termination occupy our initial attention. Author
