Abstract : This report represents a first attempt to define the display requirements of an operational high-data-rate ARTEMIS system. An attempt is made to cover all areas where the early recognition of display requirements might assist in an economical design of the overall system. (As is indicated in this report, the necessity to support displays does, in fact, strongly influence the way in which the optical processing and data reduction, storage and processing functions are organized.) After display requirements are established and formats for the various displays are specified, the report defines an economically feasible ARTEMIS high-data-rate data-processing system which is capable of supporting the specified displays. The conclusion of the study is that an appropriate detection display can be realized within the next several years.
