As part of the global refurbishment of the injector at BESSY II, a new longitudinal kicker cavity and suitable feedback will be installed in the booster. Both a flexible bunch charge and spacing is essential for efficient injection. Such a cavity is needed to mitigate the unwanted coupled bunch instabilities associated with these elaborate filling patterns and the HOMs of additional accelerating structures. This paper covers the conceptual design, simulation strategy, manufacture and bench tests of the longitudinal kicker cavity before it is installed in the ring.
