Investigation of production manufacturing methods for aspheric lens surfaces continued. The period which precedes the start of integration of the entire control complex with the machine tool itself is reported. This is significant in that many problems present a choice of multiple solutions with an extensive range of apparent reliability and cost implications. Means of improving pulsing techniques for the low surface speed and high packing density required is being researched. The details of the means by which the resulting reliability of ic pulsing was accomplished is reported. Parallel with this activity, a new translator has been nearly completed, and many other areas of work involving the main control panel and interconnecting cabling has proceeded routinely.
