This report covers the first three months activities on a program to explore the feasibility of combining two, three or more Ka-band interaction structures in cascade to produce an N-tupling of the peak and average power capability of a single stage. Activity to date has progress in two paths - analytical and mechanical. Analysis of the transmission line problems involved has determined the proper electrical design approach for the early models. Further analytical work is essential and is being pursued. The mechanical design, which involves modification of a basic Ka-band ICEM magnetron, has proceeded satisfactorily, and initial parts procurement has begun. The first hot test vehicle will be tested during the next quarterly period.
