  Beam position monitors (BPMs) throughout the CLIC (Compact Linear Collider) main linac and beam delivery system must routinely operate at 50 nm resolution and be able to make multiple position measurements within a single 156 ns long bunch train. A prototype cavity beam position monitor, designed to demonstrate this performance, has been tested on the probe beamline of CTF3 (the CLIC Test Facility). Sensitivity measurements of the dipole mode position cavity and of the monopole mode reference cavity have been made. The characteristics of signals from short and long bunch trains and the dominant systematic effects have also been studied.
