Progress during the reporting period continued to be slower than desired. Technical difficulties developed in three areas which delayed the completion of the design phase. A critical problem still exists with the CR-71U crystals. The crystal manufacturer has not been able to supply a crystal to meet MIL-C-309849. In addition, the receipt of linear SCNs from the vendor was delayed to 31 March and the digital SCNs have been delayed to 1 May. This has delayed the testing and evaluation of some designs and delayed the schedule for the beginning of assembly of the equipment. The design phase was completed, however, and fabrication has begun. A prototype frequency standard has been built and will be displayed at the Third Annual Microelectronic Symposium in Monterey, California on 5, 6 and 7 April. A prototype amplifier module from the Distribution Amplifier will also be displayed at the symposium. Author
