Abstract : This report covers the development, installation and testing of modifications and corrections to the Readout Trigger Generator. Evaluation tests showed the Readout Trigger Generator had several deficiencies and certain interface problems with the Video Tracking System, Plan Position Data Display System, and with the Beacon Video Proc essing Equipment. In order to correct these deficiencies and interface problems, it was necessary to design and install certain fixes and changes to the Readout Trigger Generator and to interconnecting system cables. Also as part of this effort, several design weas were uncovered and corrected in order to enhance the reliability and maintainability of the Readout Trigger Generator. The results of the acceptance tests, as well as the test specification are appended. A recommendation, as a result of this effort, is to move the Readout Trigger Generator equipment from its present location near the PPDD unit processors to the row of equipment across the aisle and adjacent to the Video Tracker Cabinets in order to reduce the cable lengths and thereby reduce noise on critical analog signals.
