High-Power Microwave Facilities
The High Energy Microwave Laboratory comprises 25,484 square feet of laboratory and administration space for developing/testing high power microwave systems and performing vulnerability studies. HEML has a large anechoic chamber (echo and reverberation free) that holds airplanes for electronic system tests. Shielded rooms contain state-of-the-art instrumentation for operating HPM sources and measuring pulsed radiation characteristics and electrical responses. A suite of narrow to wide-band sources produce output in the frequency range of the anechoic quiet zone. HEML hosts joint experiments with all three services, other government agencies, and foreign countries. U.S. Air Force photo
