This report describes Thomas Electronics performance in establishing the Manufacturing Methods and Technology to fabricate 25mm CRT assemblies in support of the armys integrated Helmet and Display Sight System IHADSS. The objective and overall structure of the program is first summarized. Each phase of design, confirmatory production, pilot production, and qualification testing is then sequentially described in detail. This MMT Program has accomplished the following essential objectives Design development of the CRT to conform to IHADSS specification established with delivery of five engineering samples Process development to facilitate volume production, established with delivery of ten 10 confirmatory samples Actual production capability demonstration, established with delivery of twenty 20 pilot run samples, demonstrating ship capability of 5 units per week Full environmental qualification of the developed design and Reliability testing of the design in excess of the mean life requirement of 2,500 hours.
