For boosting the peak power of microwave radiaton pulses emitted by a mass-produced magnetron, a two-stage series-resonance microwave pulse compression system is connected to its output. The magnetron generated pulses with a power of up to 2.5 MW, a length of 3 μs, and a repetition rate of up to 400 Hz. After the first compression stage, microwave pulses with a peak power of 150 MW and a length of 11 ns at a 3-dB level were obtained; after the second stage, these parameters were 1 GW and ∼1 ns.
