Abstract:

The IEMP effects of two types of apertures are discussed for a satellite-type system. The apertures are a slot electrically isolating one conducting section of a system from another and a hole in the surface of the system. Simple system shapes are investigated and generalizations are drawn from the results with an emphasis on obtaining order of magnitude estimates for more arbitrary system geometries. An attempt is made to compare these electromagnetic, exterior to interior, coupling effects with the interior effects due to having an aperture in the source region and with those IEMP effects due to X rays penetrating the surface of the system. A hardware design suggestion is made to harden against what appears to be the most dangerous coupling effect.
