Abstract : The purpose of the program was to conduct a study for the design of a land mass transparency recording system using laser techniques. The study considered the optics necessary for focusing and modulating the laser beam, the electronics necessary to decode the tape reader's input, the electronics and mechanics of the scan generation system, film stability, and human factors aspects of film handling. The rotating drum configuration was selected as the most suitable approach. The analysis delved into focusing variations due to fabrication tolerances, the control of jitter arising from bearing and motor disturbances. (Author)
