Abstract

Mobile pulsed ring down arrays are of great interest due to their ability to deliver high peak power electromagnetic pulses. Global positioning system (GPS) devices are used as a means to provide position information to individual array elements. An array of solid state radiating structures was built and tested. The array test results are compared to a Monte Carlo array simulation that take into account source jitter, timing error, and distance error between array elements due to GPS measurements.
