Abstract
A CATHODE WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH MINIMIZES THE HEATING POWER REQUIRED PER AMPERE OF ELECTRON GUN BEAM CURRENT, IS OF STUDY CONSTRUCTION TO WITHSTAND ROCKET FLIGHT, DOES NOT DETERIORATE DURING EXPOSURE TO ATMOSPHERIC GASSES WHILE COLD AND PRODUCES AT LEAST TENS OF AMPERES CURRENT. AN ELECTRON GUN WILL BE DESIGNED WHICH WILL BE CAPABLE OF TENS OF AMPERES BEAM CURRENT AT ENERGIES UP TO TENS OF KILOVOLTS, IS RUGGED, LIGHT WEIGHT, SMALL ENOUGH TO BE SUITABLE FOR OPERATION ON A ROCKET OR SPACE SHUTTLE, AND CAPABLE OF BEING MODULATED FROM 0 TO 100 KHZ.
