The DARHT-II accelerator produced a 2 kA, 17 MeV beam over a 1600 ns flattop. After exiting the accelerator, the long pulse is sliced into four short pulses by a kicker and quadrupole septum and then transported and focused on a target for conversion to bremsstrahlung for radiography. We describe the initial commissioning tests of the kicker, septum, transport, and multi-pulse converter target. The results of beam measurements made during the commissioning of the accelerator downstream transport are described. Beam optics simulations of the commissioning results are described.
