Abstract:

A survey was made of a number of possible uses of the facility including transmission lines, microwave components, lasers, and radiation weapons. A projection of the state of the art for transmission lines for the 1967 and 1977 decade is also included. Power levels of the magnitude anticipated for this period indicate a radical departure from conventional transmission line. The use of high dielectric gases or vacuum will not be sufficient to achieve the required power using conventional waveguide. It presently appears that tall or square waveguide presents an interim solution. However, as research on circular waveguide advances and as power sources for TE01 circular electric mode becomes available, the many desirable features of circular guide will require its use. Delineation of the facility configuration was continued and a description of the auxiliary equipment needed for the facility is included. Analysis of the high voltage power supply and high power modulators was begun. Preliminary results are presented. Author
