The report covers the design, development, and fabrication of a Photopolymer Printer and a Processor for printing, chopping, processing, and drying positive transparency prints from processed aerial film, in 250-foot lengths by 5 inches wide, by means of a photopolymerization process. The report contains a description of the Photopolymer Printer and Processor, as delivered, and describes the various tests and design considerations in selection of a light source compatible with the characteristics of the polymer material exposure method various system resolution tests based on light source, exposure method and interval, and photopolymer materials processing, washing, and drying methods and the development of equipment to implement these operations. The report also contains operational theory relating to the use of photopolymer material for making positive transparency prints. The formula for the photopolymer coating, with mixing and coating procedures, is included. Author
