A family of electrically and mechanically compatible electronically tunable M-type backward wave oscillators has been developed. The tubes of this series have been redesigned and production refined, and small quantities of each tube type have been fabricated and subjected to stringent electrical and environmental tests. Optimum tube designs have been achieved to meet the requirements of the new ASD coordinated exhibit. Cost reduction has been obtained through the use of many common parts and through the establishment of economical manufacturing methods. The tubes have been designed for processing on the massproduction in-line exhaust system. As a result of this program, Raytheon has developed production capability covering seven of the nine frequency bands outlined in the ASD coordinated exhibit. Meanwhile, Ratheons extensive experience in the development and transfer to mass production of backward-wave oscillators will permit rapid extension of this capability to the remaining two bands if the necessity arises.
