Abstract:

This report describes the system analysis and hardware design phases 1 June 1966 through 31 March 1967 of a program to develop a family of adaptive learning devices MAPCONs that will extract, identify, and delineate detail for map compilation. The hardware designs for the first free-standing device of the family prototype MAPCON and for a prototype MAPCONNatural Image Computer version MAPCON I are presented. A discussion of the NICMAPCON interface is included, as are the complete rationale of the MAPCON design, design alternatives, test plans and materials, fabrication costs, throughput and error analysis. A five-year development plan, with briefing aids illustrating the various evolutionary stages, is also included. Author
