Abstract:

Research was conducted on a technical program demonstrating the feasibility of the Dove Data Storage and Retrieval System. This electronic system makes possible high-speed and high-density storage and subsequent retrieval of digital information on recording media such as thin metallic foils or semi-conductor films. The heart of the system is an electron beam tube which produces a spot size of five microns at the recording surface by magnetically focusing the beam. Electrostatic deflection is employed to position the beam wherever required. Highspeed accessibility for read-out operations can be accomplished by special circuitry. The device is a rugged and completely demountable unit. Author
