  Recently, there is a need of X-ray inspection system around the world to combat terrorism, drug and weapons smuggling, illegal immigration, and trade fraud. A compact standing wave (SW) linear accelerator (linac) for container X-ray inspection system has been produced at Radiation Technology eXcellence (RTX) to meet this growing need. The RF accelerating structure uses standing wave side-coupled structure fed by a 5 MW e2v magnetron with frequency of 2856 MHz. The electrons are accelerated from DC gun with energy of 25 keV to the final energy of 6 or 9 MeV at the X-ray target and generate X-ray with the dose rate of 8 Gy/min at 1 m after X-ray target. In this paper, we describe the design and optimization of side-coupled RF structure operating at π/2 mode. The beam dynamic of particle along the RF structure is also included in this paper by using ASTRA code.
