Abstract:

BEAMOS tubes, designed and constructed prior to this contract, were tested to determine their ability to meet various environmental requirements. Although the tubes were not designed specifically with these requirements in mind, data were gained during the tests for use in effecting a re-design of the tube. Two tubes were fabricated embodying the suggested design improvements. Other design improvements, brought about by General Electrics inhouse BEAMOS development program, were also included. The two tubes so constructed were tested and shown to meet the operational performance goals. The tubes were delivered to the Army. More specifically, several improvements were made to the electron optics of the BEAMOS tube. These changes were made to produce stable operation of the tube under various environmental requirements.
