A program of applied research and development is being undertaken by Raytheon Company in response to a general Air Force Requirement for a display device to be used in aircraft and space vehicles, which will provide a continuously-moving, twodimensional image, generated from information obtained from a line-scan sensor in combination with the forward motion of the vehicle. The feasibility is being investigated of a cathoderay device employing the following principles and features tenebrescent dark-trace writing and storage, viewing by ambient, reflected light, a continuously-moving, variable speed, endless belt target within the tube, and positive, direct mechanical motion coupling through the vacuum envelope. Progress made thus far confirms the feasibility of the technical approach. Author
