Abstract : The purpose of this investigation is to incorporate nonlinear effects into the analysis of non-neutral plasma beams in order to accurately estimate their performance in realistic situations. Intense non-neutral plasma beams have important applications for DEW, SDI, high power microwave/millimeter wave production and particle beam guidance systems. Keywords: Distant early warning; Strategic defense initiative; Charged particle beams; Nonlinear analysis; Space weapons; Electronic warfare.
