Efforts concern a program to evaluate the feasibility of production electron beam welding and machining of typical electron tube materials and to apply electron beam processing to the fabrication of two tube types. These tubes will be tested to determine the advantages gained from this technique. The fundamentals of the electron beam process, including its advantages over more conventional techniques, are briefly discussed. Materials procured for developmental testing are listed. The configurations to be evaluated are presented those configurations welded to date are tabulated. Evaluation procedures, where established, are presented. Progress in applying electron beam processing to electron tube fabrication is discussed. Author
