Abstract : The two equipments described in this report are designed to decode the Century coded timing signals which are generated at the R.A.E. ranges. One, the C.T.U. decoder and printer, monitors the time codes at the output of the encoding equipment and also prints out the date and precise time at which events occur. The other, the replay decoder, is used with data processing equipment and decodes the time signals when they are replayed from the data magnetic tape. The setting of time selection switches produces pulses at preset times for controlling other equipment. (Author)
