RadiaBeam Technologies is currently building the high-speed Adaptive Railroad Cargo Inspection System (ARCIS), which will enable better than 5 mm line pair resolution, penetration greater than 450 mm of steel equivalent, material discrimination over the range of 6 mm to 250 mm, 100% image sampling rate at speed 45 km/h, and minimal average dose. One of the core elements of ARCIS is a new S-band travelling wave linac with a wide range of energy control that allows energy ramping from 2 to 9 MeV within a single 16 μs RF pulse using the beam loading effect. In this paper, we will discuss the linac design approach and its principal components, as well as engineering and manufacturing aspects. The results of the experimental demonstration of intra-pulse energy ramping will be presented.
