Abstract:

A fundamental consideration in the design of military communication systems today is combat survivability in a highly hostile environment. In the absence of such survivability potential, the ability of most critical communication systems to fulfil its mission is jeopardized. Communication survivability depends upon many factors 1 Protection from EMIRFIEMP 2 Protection from temperatureweather 3 Protection from high power microwave HPM during EW and 4 Protection from ordinary ground based or air-borne radar. This research attempts to find a solution for one such threat namely protection from HPM. The main objectives of this research work is to develope a low cost microwave absorptive materialsMAM to protect electronic components, devices, and equipment from HPM. The objectives are to identify, characterize, and evaluate sample absorptive materials. Another requirement of this research work was to develope a product that can be formulated in such a way so that it can be applied very easily on a variety of components such as printed circuit boards, coaxial wave guide low-passhigh pass or pass band filters, radomes and antennas
