Title: Synopsis of Cathode #4 Activation

Abstract

The purpose of this report is to describe the activation of the fourth cathode installed in the DARHT-II Injector. Appendices have been used so that an extensive amount of data could be included without danger of obscuring important information contained in the body of the report. The cathode was a 612 M type cathode purchased from Spectra-Mat. Section II describes the handling and installation of the cathode. Section III is a narrative of the activation based on information located in the Control Room Log Book supplemented with time plots of pertinent operating parameters. Activation of the cathode was performed in accordance with the procedure listed in Appendix A. The following sections provide more details on the total pressure and constituent partial pressures in the vacuum vessel, cathode heater power/filament current, and cathode temperature.

  • Research has refined atmospheric models over time. However, instruments used to explore atmospheric properties (natural constituents or man's pollutants) were often pushed to their useful limits, and, therefore, required calibration not only for the parameter of interest but also for altitude parameters which affected the primary measurement. The then current standard atmosphere was referenced for each set of measurements to compensate for the effects of pressures, density and temperature. Surviving documentation rarely specifies which year's model was used in calibration but often pressure versus altitude data are available. Also, reference to a subsequent year's model was then impossible but ismore » now relevant. This report provides a simple means of comparing models to each other and to data records by reducing them to one equation for each parameter versus altitude. Constants and variables are tabulated by year and a computer program for generating the dependent variables is included. This work originated as a prelude to an error analysis of a family of turbine type flow sensors from 20 to 40 km from 1954 to the present.« less
  • This report documents the design rationale of the High Speed Systolic Array Processor (HiSSAP) testbed. In addition to reviewing general parallel processing topics, the impact of the HiSSAP testbed architecture on the top level design of the diagnostic and software mapping tools is described. Based on the experience gained in the mapping of matrix-based algorithms on the testbed hardware, specific recommendations are presented in the form of lessons learned, which are intended to offer guidance in the development of future Navy signal processing systems.
  • This report, Part 2, describes specific actions appropriate for various entities with respect to varying conditions, including severity and duration of shortfalls, the lead time required for the planning and implementing of these actions, and the barriers to their timely adoption and implementation.
