Grant No. 2004-IJ-CX-K035 required the fabrication/demonstration of a high power solid state (SS) radio frequency (RF) directed energy (DE) weapon brassboard. This was essentially a lab demonstration model and does not resemble the envisioned hand-held weapon. Utilizing the 2004 brassboard, this 2009 effort will produce an RF weapon with a tactical weight and form factor. This will be accomplished by the careful design of the housing, array control system, and power supply system. Efforts will be made to produce a semi-tactical weapon with ruggedization techniques applied where applicable. The supporting system components will be designed into a lightweight backpack that is connected to the weapon by an umbilical style cable cluster. This effort will also increase weapon effectiveness and usefulness in a tactical situation. The resulting weapon will have the look, feel, and RF functionality of a tactical man-portable active denial weaon. The weapon will approach the weight, ruggedization, firing-time and environmental requirements that the eventual fielded weapon will be required to have, representing an intermediate step toward defining the requirements of an operational SS active denial system.
