    Fast LTD technology looks promising for making the pulsed power generators for some applications more compact and less expensive because it does not need any pulse forming lines to produce nanosecond output pulses. In the report we present the 1 MV generator that is being produced to demonstrate the technology capability. The generator is designed to deliver a 1 MV, 125 kA, ∼50 ns width at 80% of peak amplitude pulse to the ∼8 Ohm vacuum diode. The stored energy of the generator is 14 kJ, the footprint ∼ 2 m2.
