Title: LA-43-S-CT Post Shot

Abstract

LA-43-S-CT was conducted on 12/14/15to verify the performance of the HE/Armature system intended for use in a new configuration of Ranchero Flux Compression Generators (FCGs). Subsystem tests preceded this experiment, and a synopsis of the issues explored in these is presented. The system was viewed by two fast framing cameras, an array of PDV probes, and an electronic streak camera that provide very good time and space resolution for motion of the armature during expansion. The test is described in very good detail, and the result is that the armature system is adequate for use in the Ranchero 43-S system for future physics tests.
