Abstract:

The paper describes the development of the 8760H traveling-wave tube. The performance of the two tubes fabricated on this program is presented. In addition, technical design approach used on this development program is presented. The 8760H traveling-wave tube is an air-cooled, CW, coupled cavity traveling-wave tube for use in military satellite communication ground terminals. The tube is designed to operate over the frequency band 7.9 to 8.4 GHz, and is capable of providing either 600 or 1200 watts of saturated RF output power over the 500 MHz band while providing low distortion characteristics.
