Abstract:

A need arose for experimental data which would enable more exact design of surface-mounted antennas on missiles which would avoid corona and voltage breakdown in the higher atmosphere. A contract was initiated to obtain 1 a literature search and 2 experimental data covering voltage breakdown in air as a function of pressure, frequency, pulse length, electrode spacing, and degree of ionization.
