Stimulated Brillouin backscatter in long scale length plasmas is calculated using a wave kinetic model. These calculations make use of computer hydrodynamic profiles for these plasmas. Results are presented for the parameters of the joint NRL- LLNL experiments and for reactor size pellets of 5 mm characteristic length. Means of reducing high levels of backscatter for the latter case are investigated. Author
