The Radiation Effects and High Energy Density Science Research Foundation seeks to advance science and engineering in the areas of radiation effects sciences, high energy density science, and pulsed-power science and technology to address critical national security issues.
The Module (there are several, and you can make your own) determines what the energy pulse is used for -- to launch a projectile, to explode a wire, to crush a can with a magnetic field, etc. These modules can be purchased individually, allowing a single High Energy Pulse.
I was envisioning these as pulsed lasers. With a pulse, so long as the light is delivered into a smaller spot than the crater which is excavated, the crater will explode to full effect. Since higher energy pulses.
