Description

These helix type Pulsed Traveling Wave Tubes (TWTs) provide superior wide-band and peak power performance. Our Pulsed Traveling Wave Tubes are of metal-ceramic construction for severe environmental conditions and utilize rare earth periodic permanent magnets for power-free focusing. This combination creates a rugged, light weight device suitable for any military airborne or ground-based platform. Photonis Defense offers an extensive selection of fully developed designs but will also work with you to design a TWT to meet your specific requirements.
