The superconducting rf-dipole crabbing cavity is one of the two crabbing cavity designs proposed for the LHC high luminosity upgrade. The proof-of-principle (P-o-P) rf-dipole cavity operating at 400 MHz has demonstrated performance exceeding the design specifications. The prototype cavity for SPS beam test has been designed to include the fundamental power coupler, HOM couplers, and all the ancillary components intended to meet the design requirements. The crab cavities will be installed in the SPS beam line prior to the installation in LHC; this will be the first crabbing cavity operation on a proton beam. The fabrication of two prototype rf-dipole cavities is currently being completed at Jefferson Lab. This paper presents the details on cavity processing and cryogenic test results of the rf-dipole cavities.
