Description: The status and near-term goals of the LBL/LLL neutral-beam-development program are described. The emphasis in this paper is on the technology of systems based on the acceleration and neutralization of positive ions; this approach will be used in the near term, probably through 1985 at least. For more efficient injection, part of our plan is to develop a negative-ion approach suitable for 200- to 400-kV injectors on confinement experiments in the 1985-90 period. However, the negative-ion based program is still very much in the research phase, and it is difficult to project how it will phase into fusion reactor fueling experiments.
