TEMPEST

Horizontally Polarized Dipole
EMP Simulator

The Horizontally Polarized Dipole (HPD) simulates a high-altitude nuclear EMP environment. It is a free-field simulator that uses a 5 MV pulser to generate a double exponential, horizontally polarized field in the test volume. The EMP environment as described in MIL-STD-464 and MIL-STD-2169 can be achieved. The pulser is 100 feet above the 232-foot diameter test pad, and the antenna masts are 325 feet apart. The tow way and facility can accommodate up to a 747-sized aircraft.
