SOFI, “Système d’Onde Foudre Indirecte”, developed for the Direction Générale de l’Armement


With its new high pulsed power generator: SOFI, ITHPP once again demonstrates its appetite and capacity for innovation. SOFI (Système d’Onde Foudre Indirecte in French) is a generator designed to simulate the indirect effects of lightning on structures such as aircrafts.

ITHPP presents its latest generator, "electro pulsed crushing system (EPCS)", developed for the selective fragmentation of material by electrical discharges.

Designed to fragment ores, WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) as well as glass, ITHPP's EPCS solution can reduce samples from 15cm to 100µm. With its 5 processing bowls with a capacity of 2 kg each, it offers the possibility of continuously processing up to 400kg in an 8-hour day for some materials.

New success for ITHPP with the realization of two so-called 'conventional' generators using a high voltage Marx at 4.3MV and a Pulse Forming Shaping Water Line (PFL) for flash radiography applications,  to improve the hydrodynamic testing capabilities of the Atomic Weapon Establishment (UK). This facility, which is part of the Franco-British TEUTATES program, will enable research and development activities to be carried out.
