Abstract:

An analysis package developed for the quantification of SGEMP effects on the Texas Instruments TI-59 programmable calculator is described. The code system is designed for use on a standard calculator using magnetic card inputs, and enables the analyst to attenuate x-ray spectra to a continuum of satellite locations, generate photoemission excitation parameters, and evaluate electromagnetic fields and cable drivers. Calculations can be made on both the exterior and interior of the vehicle for a variety of electron emission materials and x-ray environments producing both linear and space-charge-limited responses. Accuracy of the results is within a factor of 5 or better compared to complex computer calculations over ranges of x-ray environments of interest for satellite SGEMP. Example SGEMP analyses performed with the calculator and complete users instructions are described. Author
