An electromagnetic pulse device having a conductive coil, and optionally a conductive core disposed within the coil and spaced apart there from. Kopp, “A Doctrine for the Use of ElectroMagnetic Pulse Bombs (Revised Draft of RAAF APSC Working Paper #15, Jul. FIELD OF THE INVENTIONThe invention relates to electromagnetic pulse devices.BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTIONAn intense electromagnetic pulse (EMP) of short duration produces a strong electromagnetic field surrounding the pulse source. This is a higher frequency than the MHz frequency produced by traditional explosive material-containing EMP devices. To optimize the performance of the inventive EMP device, numerous parameters may be varied. This hand held, concealable device will cause various affects on different machines including BILL CHANGER MACHINES.
Technokontrol has designed via its R&D programme our unique Anti-EMPS technologies which can work in many different sectors for the protection and safety of the military, national security, strategic infrastructures and law enforcement sectors including strategic databases, cyber warfare and information technology bases including satellites, telecommunications, radars,financial services, government databanks and military installations. Once the EMPS Bomb has been activated which could also include in any mode of transport for example and especially fuel transports systems whom rely on GPS,GMS,satellite technologies as rail, shipping, aircraft and even trucking causing accidents, explosions and full technical failures.
Not only would the EMPS Attack deterrent would be effective but it will be required as mandatory by all selected nations to create a balance of powers and not allowing this technology to fall into the wrong hands thus having technologies or safety products as manufactured by Technokontrol to protect and to hinder any type of attack from anywhere or anyone for whatever reason. The great savings from financial, logistical,military,social,geo-political using these technologies are extremely important and must be considered as another great positive point towards the production of these EMPS technologies and also the safety-security technologies to protect one owns nation, society, family,etc. We should consider this technology as such as an important military deterrent as the nuclear aramament which has now been effective for more than seven decades and this could be the new long term safer but more strategic deterrent but will be harder to control as too much data and operational units have been shown as effective from private manufacturers without taking into account all the military technological and financial investment also during the last decades into this technology and even more extreme armament as lazers, etc. This present day cyber war can be understood by how the Iranians have suffered months or even years of continuous delays in their nuclear power program having introduced accidentally by purchasing corrupt technology or deliberately downloading internally viral software by anti-Iranian operatives into their operational technological operations industrial software programs which will never be recognized by any foreign military or nation but it?s obvious that cyber warfare  is active and increasing daily from internet fraud, to internet hackers to all types of terrorists. Top secret and highly classified sensitive military documents as the technical plans of the new generation USA nuclear submarines are just one example how cyber warfare has been effective by the enemy as these plans were stolen from the USA government by means of cyber attacks. We must state that even though the norm for these types of EMPS can also be created by the solar heat, solar flares, solar radiation, etc. Even in most related data to solar radiation may be very precise no one can really predict anything 100% when we can?t even forecast the weather in the next three to five days, how can us humans predict a solar flare or radiation sometime in the near future or ever. The Earth's magnetic field quickly deflects the electrons at right angles to the geomagnetic field, and the extent of the deflection depends upon the strength of the magnetic field. This interaction of the very rapidly-moving negatively-charged electrons with the magnetic field radiates a pulse of electromagnetic energy. There are a number of secondary collisions which cause the subsequent electrons to lose energy before they reach ground level. These 2 MeV gamma rays will normally produce an EMP1 pulse near ground level at moderately high latitudes that peaks at about 50,000 volts per metre. The process of the gamma rays knocking electrons out of the atoms in the mid-stratosphere causes this region of the atmosphere to become an electrical conductor due to ionization, a process which blocks the production of further electromagnetic signals and causes the field strength to saturate at about 50,000 volts per metre. The EMP2 component is generated by scattered gamma rays and inelastic gammas produced by weapon neutrons.
According to the United States EMP Commission, the main potential problem with the EMP2 component is the fact that it immediately follows the EMP1 component, which may have damaged the devices that would normally protect against EMP2. According to the EMP Commission Executive Report of 2004, "In general, it would not be an issue for critical infrastructure systems since they have existing protective measures for defence against occasional lightning strikes.
There are at present proof of small EMPS attack weapons which emit short, high-energy pulses reaching 10 gigawatts, which could destroy complex electronics systems. Any type of EMPS attack from a thermonuclear warhead to a solar flare would cause ionospheric radiation and electronic effects to any national or international region, territory or nations.
There are mainly two types of non-nuclear EMP (NNEMP) and one main nuclear High Altitude HEMP devices which have been developed since the Vietnam War mainly. The efficient execution of an Information Warfare campaign against a modern industrial or post-industrial opponent will require the use of specialized tools designed to destroy information systems. A Radio Frequency Weapon is one that uses intense pulses of RF energy to destroy or degrade the electronics in a target. The high temperatures and energetic radiation produced by nuclear explosions also produce large amounts of ionized (electrically charged) matter which is present immediately after the explosion. The formation EMP begins with the very intense, but very short burst of gamma rays caused by the nuclear reactions in the bomb. In low altitude explosions the electrons, being very light, move much more quickly than the ionized atoms they are removed from and diffuse away from the region where they are formed. This creates a very strong vertical electric current which generates intense electro-magnetic emissions over a wide frequency range (up to 100 MHZ) that emanate mostly horizontally. A separate effect is the ability of the ionized fireball to block radio and radar signals.
The central idea behind the construction of FCGs is that of using a fast explosive to rapidly compress a magnetic field, transferring much energy from the explosive into the magnetic field. The coaxial arrangement is of particular interest in this context, as its essentially cylindrical form factor lends itself to packaging into munitions.
The fundamental principle behind the design of MHD devices is that a conductor moving through a magnetic field will produce an electrical current transverse to the direction of the field and the conductor motion. The fundamental idea behind the Vircator is that of accelerating a high current electron beam against a mesh (or foil) anode.
The major problem area in determining lethality is that of coupling efficiency, which is a measure of how much power is transferred from the field produced by the weapon into the target. Front door coupling occurs typically when power from an electro-magnetic weapon is coupled into an antenna associated with radar or communications equipment.
Back Door Coupling occurs when the electro-magnetic field from a weapon produces large transient currents or electrical standing waves (when produced by a HPM weapon) on fixed electrical wiring and cables interconnecting equipment, or providing connections to mains power or the telephone network. A low frequency bomb built around an FCG will require a large antenna to provide good coupling of power from the weapon into the surrounding environment. Microwave bombs have a broader range of coupling modes and given the small wavelength in comparison with bomb dimensions, can be readily focussed against targets with a compact antenna assembly.
Mobile or hidden targets which do not overtly radiate may present a problem, particularly should conventional means of targeting be employed.
Whilst the demodulation of UE can be a technically difficult task to perform well, in the context of targeting electro-magnetic bombs this problem does not arise. Because UE occurs at relatively low power levels, the use of this detection method prior to the outbreak of hostilities can be difficult, as it may be necessary to over-fly hostile territory to find signals of usable intensity.
Technokontrol Anti-EMPS Defence against EMPS-bombs and EMPS personal carried device attacks.
The most effective defence against electro-magnetic bombs is to prevent their delivery by destroying the launch platform or delivery vehicle, as is the case with nuclear weapons. The most effective method is to wholly contain the equipment in an electrically conductive enclosure; Technokontrol has developed the Anti-EMPS Protection Panels for such protection systems termed a Faraday cages or TK-EMPS Panel Protected Bunker-Buildings, which prevents the electro-magnetic field from gaining access to the protected equipment. Where an electrically conductive channel must enter the enclosure, electro-magnetic arresting devices must be fitted. Intermittent faults may not be possible to repair economically, thereby causing equipment in this state to be removed from service permanently, with considerable loss in maintenance hours during damage diagnosis. Electromagnetic damage to any single element of a complex system could inhibit the function of the whole system. Other than hardening against attack, facilities which are concealed should not radiate readily detectable emissions.
Complex and expensive experimental efforts are more timely and cost-effective if they are tested by theoretical and computational modelling. Electro-magnetic bombs are Weapons of Electronical Mass Destruction with applications across a broad spectrum of targets, spanning both the strategic and tactical. The MRS 2000+ Designo (MRS stands for magnetic resonance stimulation) is a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) device that is inspired by Nature in its frequencies, intensities and biorhythm clock. In only 8 minutes twice a day your body and cells can be charged and energized, making the MRS 2000 the ultimate wellness tool. NASA and the Russian Space program, along with zero field studies, have proven that pulsed electromagnetic fields are not only healthy, but they are vital for survival.
Because of our modern lifestyle, we no longer get optimal exposure to the Earth's natural magnetic field.

Thus causing the downfall of the nations society, commerce, industry,government and all types of institutions as we understand it in today?s world.
These new types of technological warfare won?t stop terrorism or sabotage attacks against important national infrastructures as pipelines, refineries, factories, jumbo tanks, rail freight transports, police stations, military bases,etc.
Thus being paramount that as many as possible basic infrastructures operations centres must be protected at all costs in the event of the worst possible scenarios, especially power grids, water resources, telecommunications centres, civil protection, armed forces, government institutions,strategic fuel deposits, fuel delivery services and most importantly food and medical services to the general population.
The contra-effect is then the use of IED?s to continue a never ending battle of will but the pyscological drama of all parties doesn?t stop once back home but only begins with the traumatic psychological battlefield stresses of all parties and for the rest of their lives, especially worse for the modern nations where living standards and human lives are more valuable socially. Who would of thought of modern warefare as todays cyber wars during the 1970?s Vietnam war? However, this type of war can be done from a basement in New York to a specialist underground military bunker in Asia.
We must then also take into consideration that even though we have prepared our Technokontrol Anti-EMPS Technology for a direct military, criminal or terrorist attack, we also must consider also natural disasters which may also occur at any time without any real firm precision even though scientific studies state that during 2014-2015 the sun solar activity will be at its highest in many years and we have already suffered in some parts of the world these effects as in Ottawa, Canada and in Australia where the solar radiation brought down many electronic base services.
The EMP1 component is a very brief but intense electromagnetic field that can quickly induce very high voltages in electrical conductors. The electrons generated by these subsequent collisions have such reduced energy that they do not contribute significantly to the EMP1 pulse.
The strength of the EMP1 pulse depends upon the number and intensity of the gamma rays produced by the weapon and upon the rapidity of the gamma ray burst from the weapon.
The reality and possible construction details of these weapons are classified, and therefore cannot be confirmed by scientists in the open scientific literature. The most significant risk is synergistic, because the EMP2 component follows a small fraction of a second after the first component's insult, which has the ability to impair or destroy many protective and control features.
The EMP3 component of the pulse is a very slow pulse, lasting tens to hundreds of seconds, that is caused by the nuclear detonation heaving the Earth's magnetic field out of the way, followed by the restoration of the magnetic field to its natural place. This EMPS bomb attacks systems can now already presently take out electronic systems of nuclear or electric power plants, banks, trains, or even a simple telephone switchboard.
One uses conventional explosives to induce the EMP; another uses a single-use, high-power microwave generation device. It destroys the electronics of all computer and communication systems in a quite large area.
High Power Electro-magnetic Pulse generation techniques and High Power Microwave technology have matured to the point where practical electro-magnetic bombs are becoming technically feasible, with new applications in both Strategic and Tactical IW (Information Warfare). Under the right conditions, intense currents and electro-magnetic fields can be produced, generically called EMP (Electro-magnetic Pulse), that are felt at long distances. At the same time, the earth acts as a conductor allowing the electrons to flow back toward the burst point where the positive ions are concentrated.
About 3x10^-5 of the bomb's total energy goes into EMP in this case, 10^11 joules for a 1 Mt bomb.
Enormous induced electric currents are generated in wires, antennas, and metal objects (like missiles, airplanes, and building frames). The initial magnetic field in the FCG prior to explosive initiation is produced by a start current. In principle, any device capable of producing a pulse of electrical current of the order of tens of kilo Amperes to Mega Amperes will be suitable. In an explosive or propellant driven MHD device, the conductor is a plasma of ionized explosive or propellant gas, which travels through the magnetic field. Many electrons will pass through the anode, forming a bubble of space charge behind the anode. Whilst weapons built this way are inherently wide band, as most of the power produced lies in the frequency band below 1 MHz compact antennas are not an option. Firstly, the glide-bomb can be released from outside effective radius of target air defences, therefore minimizing the risk to the launch aircraft. Mobile and relocatable air defence equipment, mobile communications nodes and naval vessels are all good examples of this category of target. To target such an emitter for attack requires only the ability to identify the type of emission and thus target type, and to isolate its position with sufficient accuracy to deliver the bomb. The use of stealthy reconnaissance aircraft or long range, stealthy Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) may be required. This however may not always be possible, and therefore systems which can be expected to suffer exposure to the electro-magnetic weapons effects must be electro-magnetically hardened.
However, most such equipment must communicate with and be fed with power from the outside world, and this can provide entry points via which electrical transients may enter the enclosure and effect damage.
A range of devices exist, however care must be taken in determining their parameters to ensure that they can deal with the rise time and strength of electrical transients produced by electro-magnetic devices.
This factor must also be considered when assessing the hardness of equipment against electro-magnetic attack, as partial or incomplete hardening may in this fashion cause more difficulties than it would solve.
Such computations are made tractable by viewing the device as a system consisting of a pulsed power source, microwave source, and an antenna. As such their use offers a very high payoff in attacking the fundamental information processing and communication facilities of a target system.
Also, in the past 500 years, the earth's magnetic field has declined by over 50% and is only getting worse. A spark gap or similar device is attached to the plasma discharge devices to activate them to produce a traveling electric discharge. Such an occurrence is likely to permanently damage electrical devices or cause them to malfunction either temporarily or permanently.
Additionally, the device may contain one or more superconductive components, such as, but not limited to, the coil.The inventive EMP device may further include a non-magnetic insulation component disposed around the conductive coil and plasma discharge devices. This will only increase the spectrum of terror or piracy armament portfolio against normal stable nations, governments or corporations for whatever reason, from economical blackmail to political power control, simple eco-politcial-terrorism or to pure international criminal activities.
The EMP1 component causes most of its damage by causing electrical breakdown voltages to be exceeded. The magnitude of this pulse typically decays to half of its peak value within 200 nanoseconds.
The strength of the EMP1 pulse is also somewhat dependent upon the altitude of the detonation. The EMP2 component of the pulse has many similarities to the electromagnetic pulses produced by lightning, although the electromagnetic pulse induced by a nearby lightning strike may be considerably larger than the EMP2 component of a nuclear EMP. The energy associated with the second component thus may be allowed to pass into and damage systems. The EMP3 component has similarities to a geomagnetic storm caused by a very severe solar flare.[Like a geomagnetic storm, EMP3 can produce geo-magnetically induced currents in long electrical conductors, which can then damage components such as power line transformers. The EMP bomb can be smaller than a HERF gun to cause a similar amount of damage and is typically used to damage not a single target (not aiming in one direction) but to damage all equipment near the bomb. They are categorized as High Power Microwave Weapons (HPM) and Ultra Wide Band Weapon (UWB). Living organisms are impervious to these effects, but electrical and electronic equipment can be temporarily or permanently disabled by them. This is because EMP is generated by the asymmetric absorption of instantaneous gamma rays produced by the explosion.
The gamma rays emitted downward however are absorbed by the ground which prevents charge separation from occurring. EMP is formed in high altitude explosions when the downwardly directed gamma rays encounter denser layers of air below. Commercial electrical grids are immense EMP antennas and would be subjected to voltage surges far exceeding those created by lightning, and over vastly greater areas.
Fireball blackout can cause radar to be blocked for tens of seconds to minutes over an area tens of kilometers across. The start current is supplied by an external source, such a high voltage capacitor bank (Marx bank), a smaller FCG or the MHD device. Under the proper conditions, this space charge region will oscillate at microwave frequencies.
Secondly, the large standoff range means that the aircraft can remain well clear of the bomb's effects.
Buildings housing government offices and thus computer equipment, production facilities, military bases and known radar sites and communications nodes are all targets which can be readily identified through conventional photographic, satellite, imaging radar, electronic reconnaissance and humint operations.
While radiating, their positions can be precisely tracked with suitable Electronic Support Measures (ESM) and Emitter Locating Systems (ELS) carried either by the launch platform or a remote surveillance platform. The latter also raises the possibility of autonomous electro-magnetic warhead armed expendable UAVs, fitted with appropriate homing receivers. While optical fibers address this requirement for transferring data in and out, electrical power feeds remain an on-going vulnerability. Reports from the US indicate that hardening measures attuned to the behaviour of nuclear EMP bombs do not perform well when dealing with some conventional microwave electro-magnetic device designs. Older equipment and systems may be impossible to harden properly and may require complete replacement.
Indeed, shielding which is incomplete may resonate when excited by radiation and thus contribute to damage inflicted upon the equipment contained within it. The massed application of these weapons will produce substantial paralysis in any target system, thus providing a decisive advantage in the conduct of Electronic Combat, Offensive Counter Air and Strategic Air Attack.
Finally, we are bombarded with unhealthy electro-smog and EMF pollution (cell phones, alarm clocks, computers, microwaves, televisions, etc) which further decrease our energy. The discharge creates a traveling short circuit in the conductive coil thereby compressing the magnetic field. Any device containing metal oxide semiconductors, such as computers and telecommunications equipment, is particularly susceptible to damage from an electromagnetic pulse.


The device may also be surrounded by a stability-enhancing component such as a cooling device.
EMP1 is the component that can destroy computers and communications equipment and it changes too quickly for ordinary lightning protectors to provide effective protection against it. At intermediate altitudes the air absorbs these rays fairly uniformly and does not generate long range electro-magnetic disturbances.
Although only about 3x10^-10 of the total explosion energy is radiated as EMP in a ground burst (10^6 joules for 1 Mt bomb), it is concentrated in a very short pulse. Modern VLSI chips are extremely sensitive to voltage surges, and would be burned out by even small leakage currents.
The electrical properties of the plasma are optimized by seeding the explosive or propellant with suitable additives, which ionize during the burn.
If the space charge region is placed into a resonant cavity which is appropriately tuned, very high peak powers may be achieved.
Finally the bomb's autopilot may be programmed to shape the terminal trajectory of the weapon, such that a target may be engaged from the most suitable altitude and aspect. These targets are typically geographically fixed and thus may be attacked providing that the aircraft can penetrate to weapon release range.
UE has attracted most attention in the context of TEMPEST surveillance, where transient emanations leaking out from equipment due poor shielding can be detected and in many instances demodulated to recover useful intelligence. These would be programmed to loiter in a target area until a suitable emitter is detected, upon which the UAV would home in and expend itself against the target. The use of these protective systems with our own electromagnetic power supply as the TK-Omega RF5000 and TK-Orion RF5000 will also not to need to require external energy supply thus closing down all and any leaks thus allowing the base or bunker totally EMPS protected and anti EMPS attack proof. Thus needing to use Technokontrols Anti-EMPS Protection Technology which as being simple and effective will not need to be applied to the internal electronics of any of the devices required for protection as the whole area, zone, section will be protected for all outside EMPS and thus needing to install an antenna to continue to operate with the outside world once the danger has been overcome or passed allowing normal operations to continue if desired.
In simple terms, hardening by design is significantly easier than attempting to harden existing equipment. Accordingly, a device generating an EMP pulse can be used to intentionally disable electronic equipment.
As an example, a gas such as nitrogen, or a mixture of gases, may be used to cool or stabilize the electro-discharge device arc.Still further, a parabolic reflector may be included and positioned so that radiation is emitted from the EMP device substantially at the focus of the parabolic reflector, thereby directing emitted radiation to a limited area.
This means that most of the electrons are stopped by collisions with air molecules before they can complete one full circle of its spiral around the Earth's magnetic field lines. The charge separation persists for only a few tens of microseconds, making the emission power some 100 gigawatts.
The zone can extend all the way to the horizon, to 2500 km for an explosion at an altitude of 500 km. Termed Van Eck radiation, such emissions can only be suppressed by rigorous shielding and emission control techniques, such as are employed in TEMPEST rated equipment. Thus using Technokontrol Anti-EMPS technology will avoid mass change-over investments and allowing all electronics to continue their normal operations reducing cost, time, burden and protecting classified data, locations or confidential interests to outside operators. This can have military applications, but may also have other applications, particularly when implemented on a small, controlled scale.An EMP device can be fabricated by filling a metal cylinder with an explosive material. This may be advantageous to maximize output intensity of the EMP device and to protect users or objects from its effects.The scope of the invention also includes an EMP device comprising a plurality of individual EMP devices.
The field strengths for ground bursts are high only in the immediate vicinity of the explosion. Each electro-magnetic device may be activated by current generated from another of the electromagnetic devices, or may be activated by another means, either simultaneously or in succession with the other electromagnetic devices. For smaller bombs they aren't very important because they are strong only where the destruction is intense anyway.
The Earth's magnetic field causes the electrons in this layer to spiral as they travel, creating a powerful downward directed electro-magnetic pulse lasting a few microseconds. The explosive material is then ignited at one end and explodes, thereby expanding the cylinder. A combination of cascaded and parallel devices may also be implemented.The present invention further includes combining an EMP device having explosive material with plasma discharge devices. In an exemplary embodiment, current generated from the electro-discharge device activates the explosive material.The invention further includes a method of generating an electromagnetic pulse comprising forming a conductive coil around, but separated from, a conductive core, applying a current to the conductive coil to produce a magnetic field, and shorting the conductive coil with a plasma discharge device.
The magnetic field is compressed by the short circuit, and energy from the explosive is transferred to the magnetic field, causing an increasing current pulse. The conductive core may be metallic for example.While the invention has been described by illustrative embodiments, additional advantages and modifications will occur to those skilled in the art. This design can create electromagnetic radiation of sufficient strength to damage electrical devices.EMP devices, such as described above, will create radiation having frequencies on the order of one MHz or less. Therefore, the invention in its broader aspects is not limited to specific details shown and described herein.
Radiation at these frequencies is typically emitted in all directions and cannot be focused on a specific target. Modifications, for example, to the number of plasma discharge devices and the specific configuration of the electromagnetic device components may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. In addition, the explosion required to initiate the electromagnetic pulse can cause significant damage.
Accordingly, it is intended that the invention not be limited to the specific illustrative embodiments, but be interpreted within the full spirit and scope of the appended claims and their equivalents. Therefore, a need exists for an EMP device capable of producing radiation that does not require explosive material, that is not susceptible to premature destruction and that can produce radiation which can be directionally controlled.SUMMARY OF THE INVENTIONAn EMP device is disclosed. The device includes a conductive coil, and optionally a conductive core disposed within the coil and spaced apart therefrom. 3 depicts circuitry for an electromagnetic pulse device according to an illustrative embodiment of the invention.DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTIONEmbodiments of the invention provide an EMP device having an electro-discharge shorting mechanism. In its broadest sense, the invention covers EMP devices having a non-explosive material shorting mechanism.
This type of shorting mechanism may enable generation of higher frequency electromagnetic pulses than is currently possible with traditional, explosive-containing shorting mechanisms.FIG. Whether external or as a core, the conductor can provide a ground return path for a spark gap, details which will be described below. One or more plasma discharge devices 106 are disposed at least partially along a length of conductive coil 102 and spaced apart from it. Preferably, the plasma discharge devices 106 are spaced apart from conductive coil 102 approximately 5 mils (12.5?10?5 m).
The plasma discharge devices 106 create a traveling short circuit of the coil which compresses the magnetic field, and thus creates an electro-magnetic pulse.A spark gap 110 is positioned such that when activated by a current, the plasma discharge devices 106 create the electric discharge that triggers the electromagnetic pulse production, as will be explained further below.
Devices or configurations of components other than spark gaps, or equivalents thereto, may be used to activate the plasma discharge devices 106 and are within the spirit and scope of the invention.Preferably all plasma discharge devices 106 are activated by the same spark gap.
The other side of single spark gap 110 is connected to all plasma discharge devices 106 by conductive connectors, such as 108 and 114. Conductive connectors such as 108 connect the grounded end of spark gap 110 to each of the plasma discharge devices 106.
Conductive connectors such as 114 link a high voltage section of plasma discharge devices 106 to spark gap 110. Other configurations allowing for simultaneous current supply are also within the scope of the invention. 1 shows conductive connectors such as 114 converging in a substantially conical shape which is the preferred configuration. This shape may be advantageous as lengths of connectors such as 114 can be uniform, thus allowing simultaneous activation of the plasma discharge devices 106.
An illustrative number of plasma discharge devices 106 is in the range of 1 to 20, with the preferred number being 12.One or more of plasma discharge switches 106 may be constructed as those shown in FIG. 2 depicts an illustrative embodiment of a plasma discharge device 200 shown in the form of two parallel plate capacitors. Plasma discharge device 200 has a first outer electrically conductive plate 202 and a second outer electrically plate 204.
A first electrically insulating plate 210 is adjacent to first outer plate inside face 206, and a second electrically insulating plate 212 is adjacent to second outer plate inside face 208. An inner electrically conductive plate 214 is disposed between first electrically insulating plate 210 and second electrically insulating plate 212. First outer electrically conductive plate 202 is electrically connected to second outer electrically conductive plate 204 by a plate-connecting component 216, such as a conductive coil.Plasma discharge device 200 may be utilized in the present invention by applying a voltage to outer electrically conductive plate 204 while grounding inner plate 214 to create a potential difference therebetween. Because the first and second outer electrically conductive plates 202 and 204 are initially charged to the same potential, no potential difference exists between them. As noted above, a spark gap can be used to initiate a discharge of the plasma discharge device along its length. A current is initiated across the spark gap when a threshold voltage is applied to the plasma discharge device. When plasma discharge device 200 is activated, the outer conductive plate 204 is at a higher voltage relative to outer conductive plate 202. An electric-discharge is thus created along edge 218 that travels at nearly the speed of light. This discharge creates a plasma between plasma discharge device 200 and the coil of the EMP device thereby short-circuiting the coil.
3 depicts a circuit diagram that illustrates parallel plate capacitors forming a plurality of plasma discharge devices 310. Further illustrated is a conductive coil 312 having a voltage applied thereto to create a magnetic field.The configuration of plates depicted in FIG.
Discharge of one of the outer plates of a pair of parallel plate capacitors within a plasma discharge device, such as plate 304 with plate 308, results in an arc between two outer plates, such as plates 302 and 304. This is analogous to an electric-discharge traveling along edge 218 of the plasma discharge device 200. The arc shorts conductive coil windings 312 to ground, creating a flux compression, and hence producing an electromagnetic pulse. A potential applied to the coil to create a magnetic field is preferably in the range of about 1–3 KV.
