Abstract:

The purpose of this test was to operate six high level developmental traveling-wave tube amplifiers TWTA for the stated period of time at operating conditions specified in the Statement of Work, Program 777. The data obtained in this test is to be used as a basis for determining the long term operating performance of each TWTA. The test objective was to operate each TWTA at nominal ambient operating condition and environment to determine that each would maintain specified operating characteristics for the period of the life test as stated in The Program 777 Statement of Work for Traveling-Wave Tube Amplifier Life Testing Continuation.
