This grant funded procurement of 1 a second 7x14-inch rectangular window, similar to the first one, using an existing extra plexiglas windowinsert, and 2 a second porthole window assembly for the 7x14-inch opening, with a pair of 5-inch conformal plexiglas windows. The twowindows were received in March 2018. Initial attempts at testing the windows showed some slight mistakes in the construction that prevented fullinstallation into the BAM6QT. It should be possible to correct the problems in house, using the department machine shop. Once the issues arefixed, the windows will be pressure-tested and then be available for use in the BAM6QT.
