dc.description.abstract Cloudsat’s Cloud Profiling Radar (CPR) delivers a 2 kW of RF pulse using an extended Interaction Klystron (EIK). 'To drive such an EIK, it was necessary to develop a -16.3 kV High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS) and a Focus Electrode Modulator (FEM), floating at Cathode potential to turn the EIK's Beam on and off -45V to -3kV with respect to the Cathode. This paper describes the design approach for the FEM and its performance at EM and Flight Configuration. In author’s opinion it a simple but universal approach which allow designer to achieve greater flexibility and freedom in designing high swinging space qualifiable FEM. en
