Abstract:

Scale-model tests were conducted to establish the adequacy and limitations of model measurements as tools for predicting electromagnetic pulse EMP coupling voltages and currents to the critical antennas, cables, and metallic structures on ships. The scale-model predictions are compared with the results of the full-scale EMP simulation test of the Canadian ASW ship, HMCS Huron. The EMP coupling predictions in this report were made without prior knowledge of the results of the data from the HMCS Huron tests. This report establishes that the scale-model tests in conjunction with the data base from our EMP coupling modules provides the necessary information for source model development and permits effective, low cost study of particular system configurations.
