Abstract:

A system is described which was designed and constructed to test techniques for a radar acquisition system capable of high speed data processing. A description of a system instrumented to measure range to 100 feet and doppler shift to 300 cps is given. The acquisition system channel is broken down into four major subdivisions 1 the storage tube and its associated electronics 2 a master timer used to time all the operations of the system 3 the Ultrasonic Light Modulator ULM with its associated crystal driving amplifier and optical system and 4 the image converter and image orthicon read-out system.
