  The Scorpius electron linear induction accelerator is currently being developed for NNSA stockpile stewardship’s Enhanced Capabilities for Subcritical Experiments (ECSE) Program. The purpose is to provide multiple x-ray pulses for flash radiography of large hydrodynamic experiments driven by high explosive. The Scorpius accelerator is designed to produce four 90-ns, 2-kA, 20-MeV electron pulses with the inter-pulse separation varying from 100 ns to 900 ns. The exiting electron pulses will be focused onto a high-Z target to produce the needed radiographic x-ray sources. The ECSE Scorpius project is managed at Los Alamos National Laboratory with cooperation from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory and Nevada National Security Site. Currently, the project completion date is set for 2024. This presentation will cover Scorpius accelerator’s development status.
