The study develops the requirements for a highly reliable cathode ray tube type of Vertical Display Systems VDS for use in Advanced Navy All-Weather Aircraft of the 1980s. First the operational requirements study identified the detailed information required for the VDS. The performance requirements section converts the general operational requirements into specific mechanization requirements. Mechanization tradeoffs then evaluate specific candidate designs and selects the optimum design mechanization for the VDS. A reliability analysis is also performed and aids in making the hardware tradeoffs. A TV type resonant indicator is selected to be optimum for the VDS application along with an in-raster or digital television symbol generator. Also two candidate digital scan converter PPI to TV mechanizations are recommended for further evaluation. Author
