Abstract : The main objective of the program is to develop a self-modulated forward-wave crossed-field amplifier at C-band with higher peak and average power capability than has been realized in the past. Tube performance objectives are 2 MW peak, 20 kW average, 50 microsecond pulse duration in C-band with 10% instantaneous bandwidth. During this report period, tube model No. 1 was completely built, sealed-in, and vacuum processed. Cold test characteristics of the tube remained relatively unchanged throughout assembly, and hot testing was started. (Author)
