Efforts concerned the production refinement of Ku-band traveling wave tubes. Detailed applica tion information and data for Ku-band traveling wave tube amplifiers resulting from the production refinement program are given. The purposes of the production refinement program were to elec trically and mechanically refine an RD model tube to make the design suitable for economical volume production, while meeting certain elec trical, mechanical, and environmental specifica tions. The tube is of ruggedized metal ceramic construction which will meet the requirements of airborne system applications under severe envi ronmental conditions. Author
