This document describes a data gathering appartus, namely a magnetic tape recorder system, which will be extremely insensitive to nuclear radiation of relatively high levels. It is based upon the use of TIMM thermionic integrated micromodule components in electronic circuits which, from a radiation standpoint, are critical circuits. Critical circuits are defined as circuits which influence directly the overall data system accuracy. The document consists of two major sections. The first section discusses the overall system implementation, while the second section describes the efforts as sociated with the design and fabrication of a TIMM amplifier. The radiation hardening techniques are also described. Author
