Abstract : The report describes the results of work performed on certain modifications to the Quantitative Motion Monitor System undertaken by Admiral Corporation under a modification addendum to the original contract for the System. These additional efforts resulted in development, design, and delivery to the Air Force of four peripheral subsystems; namely, (1) an X-Ray Detector by means of which the x-radiation during an experiment can be quantized, (2) a System Synchronizer permitting remote operation of other associated equipments (i.e. Motion Picture Camera, Video Tape Recorder, etc.), (3) an Image Enhancer to provide electronic edge enchancing of weak video image signals, and (4) an Automatic Beam Current Control subsystem for electronic control of the Image Orthicon tube; in addition, (5) a study was made of the methods by which the television portion of the system capability could be increased for experimentation by increasing its frequency response (information rate).
