This is true because of very stringent performance requirements on lifetime, average power, and energy per pulse. Another is reliability, which stems from the complexity of the system: when there are so many microwave sources, frequent breakdowns would be intolerable. This requirement argues in favor of more conservative technology choices. The key distinguishing electrical parameters of the system components are the voltage and current and their ratio, impedance. Impedance is a quite general quantity, as it also relates to appropriate components of the electric field vector E and magnetic field vector B through the component geometry and to particle drifts in the source, which are proportional to local electric and magnetic fields, E/B.
An excellent example of this is HEIMDALL, the expert system for HPM weapons,1 which calculates system concepts, meaning that it includes the subsystems but not all the ancillary equipment, such as vacuum pumps. 1, energy flows from prime power to higher-voltage, shorter-pulse-length pulsed power, and then to the HPM source. Here the energy is converted into microwaves; is extracted in a waveguide mode, which may be converted to another mode; and then radiates from an antenna. This diagram applies exactly to systems for power beaming and HPM weapons (see Chapter 3).
2. The entire system is made up of subsystems, by which we mean the technological subassemblies that comprise it. 1. Each subsystem is composed of components. For example, a microwave source can have a SWS and may require a magnet. In turn, components are made up of individual parts; a Marx generator’s parts would be capacitors, inductors, and resistors. In an antenna, the components are a pedestal, a dish, and a feed horn. ). Existing system design methods and expert systems use this system–subsystem–component– part breakdown point of view.
