Abstract:

The theoretical development useful in designing an airborne platform for transient or broadband CW electromagnetic field measurement was reported. These theoretical considerations were applied in specifically designing a nose boom B-dot sensor for the NASA F-106B aircraft. Based on this design and some refinements, the Air Force Weapons Laboratory procured such a sensor. During the EMP testing of the NASA F-106B aircraft February-March 1984 at Kirtland AFB, NM, extensive data were gathered by the nose boom sensor in various aircraftsimulator configurations. This report documents all of the nose boom data given to LuTech, Inc. The results of processing and analysis accomplished with the given resources are presented in this report. Some additional processing methods appear possible in the future efforts of this nature.
