Abstract : Parameters for a single group display chain that will meet most command and control systems requirements for the 1962-1965 time period are provided. Based on an evaluation as to the best available display state of the art, a film projection system is recommended. Modularity of components is also stressed to derive the benefits of intra and inter-system interchangeability without extensive and costly redesign or retrofit. Basically the display chain will provide: 15 sec updating; six colors plus white; 2400 optical line image resol tion; as many as 256 different symbols in up to four different sizes; up to 28,800 symbols generated nd displayed in a 120 x 240 format; and line generation for graphics. Discussion is also included on the availability, capabilities and limitations of light valve and electroluminescent techniques for systems application. (Author)
