Abstract:

We present the results of research into constructing analytical andor computational models for predicting the probability-of-effect Pe associated with high power RF HPRF radiation impinging upon digital electronic equipment. Our initial efforts are focused upon those pieces of equipment which serve as nodes in computer networks, such as computers, routers, and switches. We take the problem of predicting HPRF effects for such a system, and present an approach based on partitioning the complete model into a set of sub-models. For each sub-model, we present an analysis of existing computational and theoretical approaches, and how these might be applied andor extended for the current problem. Finally, we investigate the problem of building predictive models for a microcontroller, as a simplified digital system a computer on a chip, and present an initial model.
