Abstract:

Project SCRAMs prime program objective is to establish economical methods of storing 10,000 unit records and retrieving them at a minimum rate of 150 per second per module. Hydraulic and pneumatic methods of unit-record transport proved operationally unreliable and difficult to implement during subsequent breadboarding, so they were abandoned. More reliable and economical electromechanical hardware was developed. Logic subsystem design, special memory-control circuit design, design of commercial logic cards, and the drum memory design are discussed in this report. Author
