Abstract:

Evaluation of tube No. 13, design A, made for assessing manufacturing conditions at the Easton plant, did not show an improvement over previous tubes. Changes in the grids of tube No. 14 were made in accordance with the program of work outlined in the previous Progress Report AD-629 287. A baffled box type gradient grid was substituted for the original one plate grid, and baffling of the control grid was increased. Improved performance at low repetition rates was observed, but evaluation at high PRR under specified conditions was not possible owing to continued failures of the Phase II test modulator. A general overhaul of the set was initiated. Author
