Abstract : A 12.5-kW, 7.7 to 8.4 GHz traveling-wave tube and its associated operating equipment has been developed. This traveling-wave tube operates at a power level of 12.5-kW CW with minimum efficiency of 35 percent. The demonstrated life of this device is in excess of 2,000 hours. This report describes in detail the electrical and mechanical properties of the traveling-wave tube and its associated console. A chronological summary of the development program and a discussion of each of the major problems encountered is given. Recommendations for future work in this general area are included. (Author)
