Abstract:

The program was concerned with refinement of the design of the ruggedized version of the high-resolution, 4 12-inch Return Beam Vidicon RBV. The principal objectives of the program were 1 increased tube yield, stability, and life through use of a dispenser cathode and 2 increased target prepare potential and speed through gun structural modifications. Other overall program objectives included increased multiplier gain, decreased image shading, and smaller mechanical tolerances. Structural modifications were made to the electron gun which consisted of an improved triode section and a high-current, double-crossover section. Seven electron-gun dummy tubes and ten complete RBVs were fabricated and tested. Author
