A Dual Purpose Pulse Forming Network DP-PFN has been developed to power both the Electro-Thermal- Chemical ETCElectro-Thermal-Ignition ETI lethality capability and the Electro-Magnetic Armor EMA survivability capability improvements envisioned for future hybrid-electric combat vehicles. The DP-PFN is capable of providing two types of energy pulses to accommodate gun and armor loads extremely short pulse lengths for the EMA, or longer pulse lengths for the ETIETC Gun. This capability of the DP-PFN allows for emulation of three major hybrid-electric, lethality, and survivability functions of an electrically-driven ground combat vehicle.
