A survey was made of the various uses of the facility in the investigation of plasma physics and the effects of the plasma phenomena. The high voltage power supply, resonant rings, drivers and modulators to be used in the facility were delineated. Three modulators, three resonant rings, and two drivers will be included in the initial facility configuration. The modulators will be hard tube, soft tube, and floating deck types and the drivers will be L-band pulsed and X-band c-w types. The resonant rings will be oversized waveguide at Lband and X-band frequencies and circular waveguide at Xband. The initial building design was completed and a layout is included. The initial facility configuration comprises five major areas administration, auxiliary equipment and shops, test bay, transformer vault, and capacitor vault. Author
