Abstract:

The main efforts were concentrated on extending the upper frequency limits from the conventional 2 MHz to about 50 MHz and beyond. This report presents the results of phase I of this program, which includes HDL efforts along with those of a commercial contractor. Successful recordings were made at tape speeds about 8 times those of the fastest conventional longitudinal recorders. Tape velocities of 1,500 insec with a respective recording interval of 7 seconds were possible without any damage to tape or head. Author
