Abstract:

The report is written in answer to letters from radio amateurs asking about the impact of microelectronics on military techniques. Because the electronic equipment on rockets as well as aircraft is so bulky, various methods of miniaturization must be used. These methods, including compact mounting methods, thin film circuitry, solid state circuitry, are discussed in some detail. Included in this discussion are qualitative explanations of the construction of circuit elements in thin film and solid state devices. The subject is treated in a general way, with no hint of the type of equipment peculiar to Soviet practice. Author
