I have started reading the old posts and appologize for the redundancy I have introduced.

That being said, around 1990, while I was involved in aerospace (B2 and others) an old-friend, highly positioned, very highly-cleared, very "black op" friend of mine asked me what I thought of the "TWT" - which he inferred was a very high power (man portable?) nuclear accelerator. Now, I am familiar with wave guides being refered to as travelling wave tubes - but I don't think that was what he was reffering to... Does anybody have a clue?
