Abstract:

The report documents the use of electron beam recording techniques to produce micromap color separation negatives to subsequently be enlarged and printed for publication at standard Army topographic map sizes at scales of 1100,000 or larger. The report describes the graphics input generator supplied by USAETL to CBS Laboratories CLD, the interface and random access beam positioning electronics developed by CLD, the CLD electron beam recorder EBR used in the investigation, and generation of micromap data on film chips with the EBR using software and magnetic tape inputs prepared by Fort Belvoir personnel. The results of this investigation indicate that electron beam recording can be employed in a vector plotting mode for the generation of micromap color separations and can achieve the required high resolution performance levels.
