    The Power-By-Wire (PEW) program involves the replacement of hydraulic and pneumatic systems currently used in aircraft with an all-electric secondary power system. One of the largest loads of the all-electric secondary power system will be the motor loads which include pumps, compressors and Electrical Actuators (EAs). Issues of improved reliability, reduced maintenance and efficiency, among other... View full abstract»

    Litton EDD is developing a new class of Ka-band traveling-wave tubes (TWTs) that use a novel integral-polepiece folded-waveguide circuit to generate peak and average powers up to 1,500 watts. Rugged and highly reliable, this new technology is especially suited for airborne radars. Ongoing developments to increase the average power, the bandwidth and the frequency may be useful for future designs View full abstract»
