The development of a f a fiber optics image device using the cylindrrical fibers redistribution system is discussed. The program included the investigation of various fabrication techniques and the construction of equipment for the suitable manipulation of fiber layers to form an image device. Three fabrication techniques, 1 rotating substrate, 2 expanding substrate, and 3 expanding-contracting, were investigated. A machine was designed and constructed for the production of fiber layers which would be close packed at one end and spaced by 12 times the diameters of the fibers at the other end. The basic feasibility of a fiber optics imagee enlargement device and the machinery required for its fabrication was fairly well proven in the program. Author
