Abstract

One major challenge associated with high power microwave systems is being able to produce high voltages and fields in a compact space. In this paper, we discuss two options for extremely compact mesoband HPM systems operating in the UHF (near 500 MHz). These systems fit into a cylindrical volume of diameter 10-cm, and are designed to be able to include the prime power, pulsed power, and antenna radiation. The pulsed power is based on a well-established quarter-wave oscillator, and here we consider the extremely electrically small EZ antenna as well as a compact, non-conventional helical antenna.
