Abstract:

Test, evaluation and analysis were made on two magnetic tape transports. These data were compared against the Air Force requirements to record Digital Data generated by an Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar SetAnalog to Digital ConverterDuty Cycle Compression System for ANUPD-X. An Airborne Digital Tape Transport configuration is proposed based on these data and analysis. Performance and performance margins are given or estimated. Magnetic tape evaluation data is also analyzed and a tape drop-out model is presented with a proposed Error Detection and Correction EDAC system which will allow very high bit packing densities two billion bits per cubic inch at low bit error rates with uncertified magnetic tape.
