A program is in progress to establish a production capability for the purpose of meeting estimated military needs for the X6335, a 1kW sealed beam xenon arc lamp with low voltage starting mechanism. In accordance with the requirements of the contract, the third engineering sample is still undergoing fabrication to meet specification. Improvements were made to reduce manufacturing costs and improve reliability. These included Molybdenum insert was added to improve heat transfer from anode to heatsink Anode base changed from steel to copper Stinger bearings changed to sapphire to reduce friction New mandrel machined and precision polished Test bench set-up to evaluate individual reflectors for focal point location and relative output readings Lamp with demountable electrodes designed to study electrode optimization and Stinger mechanism cycle tested and evaluated.
