Abstract : The purpose of this program is to develop, fabricate and supply two fiber optic faceplate cathode ray tubes, having the electrical characteristics of the 12BCP19. These tubes shall be suitable for testing in the AN/SYA-4(V) Console Data Input Display. Du Mont Electron Tubes Division utilized the third quarterly period to fabricate glass cones for dummy tubes and process and test the first dummy tube. Actually, three dummy tubes were fabricated by the vendor. Two of these were rejected at Du Mont. The third dummy was processed and tested. This third dummy passed all electrical MIL-E-1 specs; and, on the basis of its successful performance the design of the final tube was completed. Four glass cones were delivered to the vendor in this period. (Author)
