Efforts are continued on development of a high-power broadband amplifier using the principles of a traveling-wave multiple-beam klystron. The method being followed is to 1 design the beam and the interaction impedances by a computer study 2 build a single-beam prototype for checking the calculations and obtaining final data and 3 construct a full-power 15-beam tube. At this point in the program, the beam and interaction designs have been completed, and fabrication of the single-beam prototype tube is almost complete. Test equipment for the single-beam tube has been set up, the modulator for the 15-beam tube has been designed, and major components are being received. The electromagnet for the 15-beam tube is in place, and the single-beam tube is to be tested in various positions in it.
