Abstract : Efforts were directed to establish criteria for the design of high power microwave amplifiers and for the selection of their constituent materials that will adequately allow the tubes to perform their functions in the environments conditions associated with space missions. This interim report covers the first eight months of a year's effort. During this period the effort was weighed in favor of the environment and materials to withstand the environment. Most of the ceramics and metal materials currently used in the construction of microwave amplifiers are suitable for space operation. Pre-flight testing as well as basic design considerations are also included in this report. (Author)
