Abstract : A major objective is the production of high energy, high quality multi kiloampere electron beams with compact sources. The effort to date has concentrated on the Modified Betatron Accelerator (MBA), which, with the addition of a strong toroidal magnetic field to the conventional betatron field, can confine and accelerate electron beams in the kiloampere range. Several issues, particularly relevant to injection into the MBA are discussed in this report.
