Abstract: This paper covers an approach to the design of High Voltage Power Supply Units for operating Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers in Pulse Doppler Radar Transmitter Sub‐Systems where ultra low noise RF Output is mandatory.
Currently, electron beams are produced by heating a filament to the point where electrons have enough energy to overcome the work function. In field emission, the potential barrier is lowered by the strength of the applied field only.
Travelling wave tubes are vacuum devices with electron beams that couple to a microwave frequency electromagnetic signal (loosely termed ‘r.f.’ in the trade) propagating in the direction of the beam. Energy is transferred to the microwave signal, and the device generally behaves as an amplifier.
TMD Technologies Ltd (TMD), was delighted to welcome local MP and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell to its premises in Hayes on 27 July 2016, to discuss the company’s new product innovations to boost local employment and overseas trade.
TMD Technologies has been working in partnership with LIG Nex1 on a range of defence development and production programmes for more than 10 years. The contract signed on the 13th July covers supply of Travelling Wave Tubes from TMD to LIG Nex1. A Travelling Wave Tube (TWT) is a specialized vacuum tube that is used in electronics to amplify radio frequency (RF) signals in the microwave range. These will be incorporated into the Korean company’s missile programme. The contract has a value of £5 million.
