Based on a magnetically compressed discharge with an electromagnet, a high-power plasma radiator capable of operating in the pulsed, continuous, and combined regimes has been created. The radiant exitance of the discharge plasma reaches 2×10<sup>5</sup>W/cm<sup>2</sup> in the pulsed regime and 10<sup>4</sup>W/cm<sup>2</sup> in the continuous regime.
