Abstract : An analysis of existing and future capability in high-power CW microwave generation was performed. Existing high-power tubes include 500 kW klystrons in E-band and H-band, and a 400 kW Amplitron in E-band. Future tube development programs could produce tubes with 10 MW output in D-band (1 GHz) and with 1 MW output in I-band (10 GHz). Cost, size, weight, and probability of achieving rated output power data have been developed for presently feasible 1-MW generators, and for generators using developmental devices. A prototype 1-MW E-band generator could be developed within 2 years at a cost of approximately $1.3M, would occupy one 40 foot, fifth-wheel, trailer, would weigh 57,000 lbs, and would have a 0.85 probability of achieving 1-MW power output.
