Abstract:

The development of the Mark II and Mark III Modular Audio-Visual Units is the result of a need for an audio-visual system that would provide the portability required for remote operation by psychological-warfare teams. The major constituents of the MAVUs include a public-address amplifier, radio, tape recorder, and motion-picture projector. A complete description of the Mark II and Mark III MAVUs, including detailed drawings, is presented. Two field evaluations were conducted in Thailand. The first field evaluation tested and proved the concept of the MAVU and its construction from commercial off-the-shelf components. The second field evaluation was a test of prototype production models, the Mark II and Mark III, which incorporated recommendations for improvements that resulted from the first field evaluation.
