Abstract : A series of measurements were completed on the SINUS-VI/BWO system presently located at the UNM EECE Dept. These measurements were necessary to establish that the rf and pulse power performances meet the contract specification. Measurements included antenna pattern plots, pulse power diagnostics, and calculations to establish what the microwave system should radiate. The SINUS VI pulse power device produces V sub p approximately 600 kV, I approximately 5 kA, and tau approximately 10 ns at 200 pulses per second. The BWO parameters are P approximately 500 MW, tau approximately 10 ns, and lambda approximately 3 cm (f approximately 10 GHz). The slow wave structure is inserted into a segmented solenoid which produces a magnetic field of B sub z approximately 30 kG with axial uniformity over 120 mm at a radius of 20 mm.
