A new design of a slow - wave structure of a "crossed staircase" type for a powerful broadband multi-beam X-band TWT has been considered. The use of dense packing of beams and diaphragms with bushings allows to increase the interaction impedance to 4-7 Ohm and the dispersion correction makes it possible to expand the band up to 18% using a special form of coupling slots. The calculation of electronics demonstrates a possibility of obtaining the power of 24 kW, gain of 17 dB and efficiency of
