The pulser appears to be a well built improved RES unit. The problems encountered were easily solved, and the unit has operated reliably since then. The repeatability of the radiated pulse has been found excellent. A pulse recording capability now exists and can be used to provide pulse output information as required. Present data are based on the assumption that the electrical characteristics of the B-DOT loop are determined entirely by its physical dimensions and therefore the loop is assured to be intrinsically calibrated. However, further effort is needed in the study of the loop antenna monitoring scheme to determine the accuracy with which the radiated free space field can be recorded and to determine what modifications in pulse shape, if any, arise from propagation effects and the sensor. In addition there should be a greater effort to define the pulse at higher elevation angles. Once these problems have been resolved it will be feasible to use the EMP simulator experimentally to determine system response functions with assured accuracy and relaibability.
