Purpose

Military forces are faced with new and unpredictable enemy attacks in the battlefield. The Center for Pulsed Power and Power Electronics utilizes its expertise in generating very high power electrical pulses to provide troops on the battlefield with effective, innovative technology. This effort is complemented by investigating the physical phenomena associated with pulsed high voltage.

Research Focus

Texas Tech University engineers and scientists develop compact, repetitive, high voltage generators that can drive a wide range of devices and systems for military applications. These devices and systems include directed energy devices, electronic jammers, electronic upset devices, car immobilizers, and non–lethal crowd control systems.
