Abstract : A display device is discussed for use in aircraft and space vehicles, which will provide a continuously-moving, two-dimensional image, generated from information obtained from a linescan sensor in combination with the forward motion of the vehicle. The feasibility is being investigated of a cathode-ray device employing the following principles and features: (1) Tenebrescent (dark-trace) writing and storage; (2) viewing by ambient, reflected light; (3) a continuously-moving, variable speed, endless belt target within the tube; and (4) positive, direct mechanical motion coupling through the vacuum envelope.
