High power traveling wave tubes (TWTs) used in airborne electronic warfare systems are expensive and have posed a persistent logistics challenge. We discuss prototype design for the TWT automated test station (TATS), developed by TASC under contract to the Special Programs Division of the Electronic Warfare (EW) Directorate at the Warner Robins Air Logistic Center (WR-ALC/LNXA). Recovery rates of 10 to 50 percent have been realized with various TWT types. Additional recovery opportunities are available using electrical parameter optimization. We describe a unique semi-automated optimization capability recently integrated with the TATS. Broader logistic implications are highlighted based on findings derived from the TATS development effort and tube screening results. Recommendations for improved training and field failure diagnostics are presented
