Abstract:

The mechanical Engineering Group participates in the General Research program be evaluating closed cycle cryogenic refrigerators, by designing vacuum metallizing equipment, and by refining the high pressure apparatus used in materials research. In addition, the art of stress analyzing large and complicated structures such as precise antennas has been advanced by a considerable effort in shell analysis and the development of computer programs for both static and dynamic analyses. The optical instrumentation of the KC135 aircraft for the PRESS program has progressed to its third and final phase. In the Space Communications program, two interesting projects are developing in the design of an air-transportable compact communications terminal, and in the design of a communications research satellite. The major new effort of the Construction Engineering Group during the quarter has been the design and initial construction of a radar transmitter research facility for the Radar Division. Author
