The work involves a three-part analytical, experimental and design program for development of a High-Energy, Fast-Pulse Power System to be used for simulation of certain aspects of high-altitude, nuclear detonations. The program was undertaken with objectives of 1 design and cost estimates of the system, and 2 analytical and experimental studies to answer certain remaining questions regarding operation of such a system. It has resulted in a recommended design for a practical system and has provided certain results and conclusions from the experimental and theoretical studies. These findings indicate that such a system can be constructed and have shown what may be expected in regard to output radiation dose rates relative to discharge of the system stored electrical energy.
