The development of a wide-band, high-power traveling-wave tube is described. The tube has the following features 1 three to one frequency bandwidth, 2 mimimum efficiency of 30 percent, 3 minimum saturated gain of 25 db, 4 single stage depressed collector, and 5 one kilowatt CW minimum power output. The development program is discussed, touching on both successes and problems during the experimental program. Design and electrical results are presented in graphical form and include depressed collector operation, gain versus frequency, and power output and efficiency versus frequency. Some important conclusions regarding high efficiency, wideband operation are discussed, particularly with regard to efficiencies above 40 percent. Author
