Voltage breakdown characteristics of microwave antennas
At low pressures, antennas are susceptible to voltage breakdown. In the case of missiles, for example, there are indications that very low power is sufficient to initiate and maintain breakdown.… Expand
Voltage Breakdown Characteristics of Microwave Antennas
The problem of voltage breakdown and its effects is discussed for a pulse antenna system. Voltage breakdown occurs at power levels when the pressure is reduced. The minimum breakdown potential occurs… Expand
Studies on ionization phenomena associated with solid-propellant rockets.
Solid propellant composition and rocket motor design effect on plasma microwave and visible light attenuation emitted by exhaust
Power-Handling Capability of ECM Antennas.
Abstract : The electrical breakdown characteristics of the LPJ-1 and the SLOT L-1 antennas furnished by Lincoln Laboratory were measured. Modifications to increase the power-handling capability of… Expand
Reduction of gas discharge breakdown thresholds in the ionosphere due to multipacting

SRI PARTICIPATION IN VOLTAGE BREAKDOWN AND ROCKET CHARGING EXPERIMENTS ON NIKE-CAJUN ROCKET AFCRL AD 6.841.
Abstract : Results of antenna voltage breakdown and rocket charging experiments on the supersonic flight of Nike-Cajun Rocket AD 6-841 are presented. Rocket altitudes up to 340,000 feet and rocket… Expand
Initial transient behavior of multipactor discharges
ROCKET ANTENNA MULTIPACTOR BREAKDOWN UNDER DYNAMIC PRESSURE CONDITIONS.
Abstract : An anomalous high-altitude voltage breakdown on a VHF antenna aboard Nike-Cajun Rocket AD 6.841 is investigated. A previously proposed cause of the anomaly, a dynamic pressure variation… Expand
