Flashover voltage and picosecond risetime of breakdown in pressurized SF_{6} gas is studied on a coaxial line. Gas pressure is varied from 1 to 19 bar. The homogeneous field gap has an opening from ca. 0.2 to 0.9 mm, and flashover voltages reach 120 kV. Measurements are performed using a D-dot probe with 16 to 20 GHz real-time oscilloscopes and a 50 GHz sampling oscilloscope. Measured risetimes are down to ca. 50 ps, and the dependence of voltage collapse on gas density and electric field between the electrodes is reported. Integrity of data is analyzed and experimental results are compared with present theory found in literature and previous results measured with alternative real-time systems.
