Summary form only given. The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will provide an intense beam of neutrons for scattering experiments. The SNS will be comprised of an ion source, a 1 GeV H/sup -/ linear accelerator, an accumulator ring, a target for neutron production, and an area for the scattering experiments. It is anticipated that anywhere from 36 high-power klystrons up to 160 lower-power klystrons operating at 805 MHz will be required, depending on the final design. In addition, 7-8 klystrons operating at 402.5 MHz will be required. Characteristics of the 805 MHz klystron are given.
