Read-write tests were conducted for recording rates as high as 10 megabits per second. Preliminary testing of BEAMOS Tube No. 7 indicates a capability of 5.6 micrometer bit spacing at the 10 M bit record-read rate. Components and an improved memory tube were ordered and the tube redesign was completed. Modified author abstract
