HPRF DE Technology Opportunities and Challenges

18 Nov 2020
Track 1
This paper will provide an overview introduction to High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Directed Energy Systems and applications and the relevance to traditional EW and CEMA will be discussed.

In particular the paper will focus on some of the safety and interoperability challenges faced when considering DE T&E in relatively well populated environments and the steps taken to overcome these challenges. Whilst this paper is focussed on the high power DE end of the EW application area the challenges identified will likely have a great deal in common with the EW and CEMA interests.
