APELC’s Footlocker High-power RF source transmits a wideband RF pulse with an electric-field amplitude over 170 kV/m @ 1m. The Footlocker uses a 400-MHz dipole antenna backed by a corner reflector. The corner reflector is used to increase antenna directivity and to reduce the back-lobe radiated field. The Footlocker is typically used to study electronic-attack effects and electronic equipment vulnerabilities from a mobile platform. It may also be used for MIL-STD-464 testing and demonstration of equipment survivability in an IEMI scenario.
The Footlocker is operated using a handheld fiber-optic remote control which allows the user to select single-shot or automatic mode of operation. In automatic mode the user may select a pulse repetition frequency between 0.1 and 10 Hz. The on-board battery can be charged from standard mains voltage worldwide (100-250 VAC, 47-63 Hz). The on-board battery and air cylinder permit mobile operation for up to 10 hours on a single charge.
The Footlocker source should not be operated near computer-controlled machinery or unshielded electronic equipment unless you intend on causing potentially irreversible damage. Safe operating principles should be followed when any user is in proximity of the system and the high-voltage switch is on. This product is export-controlled and subject to ITAR regulations.
