Abstract : The design of the Moving Window Display MWD-5A, involving the primary functions of: CRT recording, rapid (5 to 6 seconds) access to the record photographed on light-sensitive silver media and the display thereof is discussed. More specifically the report covers: CRT selection, equipment configuration, CRT image recording optical components and over-all system resolution attainable, film and processing technique selection, film drying, film transport in line-scan recording, power supply requirements, and the operational reliability aspect of the equipment. Highlights of the Display are: functions with moderate cost CRT, 5.5 second minimum access time to the displayed record, minimum system resolution: 20 lines-per-millimeter on film, capable of 50 lines-per-millimeter, film and processing capacity 400 feet of 5 inch wide film, maximum film transport speed 42 I.P.M., occupies 2.8 cu. ft. of space at a flying weight of 138 pounds, and requires less than 1100 watts of power in maximum mode. Recommendations leading to the design of an advanced display are discussed. (Author)
