This report describes a MACI program for obtaining a long life X-ray tube for the ANTAQ-2 system. New design features, based on a previous research and development program, were incorporated into a commercially available X-ray tube. The new features include a large area, heat treated anode, a getter and an extended cathode baffle. The program successfully resulted in an eight-fold improvement in tube lifetime. Author
