Abstract:

The report describes the development of an aerial radiac set utilizing a scintillation detector and log pentode converter. The evolved circuitry of the aerial radiac set is completely transistorized, except for the miniature log converter tube Nuvistor. The aerial radiac set accepts the signal from a radar altimeter for automatic altitude correction. It features a presettable alarm, a telemetry output, and a chart recorder. The dynamic range of the instrument is four decades 0.01 to 100 rhr. the detector speed of response is less than 0.1 second. A regulated power supply permits operation off the 28-volt aircraft supply. Author
