The Design of a High Packing Density PCM Magnetic Tape Replay System.
ROYAL AIRCRAFT ESTABLISHMENT FARNBOROUGH (ENGLAND)
Pagination or Media Count:
The Report describes a PCM magnetic tape replay system developed for the replay of airborne recordings made at high bit packing densities. The high data capacity provided is likely to be able to meet all future RAE requirements for aircraft flight testing. The recordreplay systems employ a new multi-track serial word format particularly suited to recording in very severe airborne environments. Design of the replay system places special emphasis on ease of operation and the provision of a comprehensive error correcting system enables a high degree of data security to be obtained. Brief descriptions of the airborne recording and replay data handling systems are given and the results of performance testing presented with general comments on the choice and handling of magnetic tapes.
