This final technical report describes the conclusion of effort on the New World Vistas grant entitled "New Approaches to High Power Microwave Computation and Experimentation.' In the final year of effort we focused on concluding studies of the radial acceletron, relativistic magnetron with axial extraction, cyclotron suppression in Cerenkov devices, and the development of components of Interest to HPM. As an interesting application, we also investigated the use of HPM to propel payloads out of the solar system and proposed a means for communicating with such a payload.
