Abstract:

The report describes a program to upgrade the SNARK machine built under DASA contract. In the SNARK program, a machine was built capable of delivering a 50-kJ electron beam to an X-ray target in 50 nsec. Triggered high pressure gas switches were developed to switch the Mylar striplines. The machine delivers the energy to an accelerating tube from two replaceable modules each containing stacked Mylar stripline Blumleins. With this machine, the concept of modular Mylar energy sources is demonstrated.
