Abstract : Air defense units can accomplish successfully their missions only if there is always a clear picture of the instantaneous aerial situation. There exist numerous control schemes using luminescent panels. The authors report on a new control device built with parametrons which has very high reliability, long lifetime, low required power, and an insignificant sensitivity to external conditions and perturbations. Furthermore, the panel is inexpensive to make. The article (1) describes the design and operation of parametrons; (2) describes the computer device which accepts coded messages from ST-35 telegraph devices; (3) discusses the operation of the receiving registers, each of which can choose among 784 panel locations and flash at each location one of the 0 to 9 digits; the code decipherer converts the incoming code into a combination of electroluminophore sectors; and (4) outlines the design and composition of the cell control circuits (made of address parametrons, buffer parametrons, current amplifiers, and terminal memory parametrons) and of a simple displaced pulse generator.
