This webinar will introduce directed energy weapons (DEWs) and their effects – specifically, high-power, radio frequency/microwave (HPM) DEWs. The presentation will cover what HPM weapons are, the types of weapons – narrowband and wideband, how the weapons are similar to, but different from traditional electronic warfare (EW) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and how the HPM energy couples into a target’s electronics and their effects. We will also cover some of the basic modeling and simulation tools for computing and estimating the probability of target failure as a function of weapon power density and range. Finally, we will show an example of how to determine hardening requirements for a notional helicopter against an HPM weapon.
