Abstract : A fast, accurate and portable data reduction system was developed for the XR-3 Captured Air Bubble testcraft being evaluated at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California. The system consists of four units. A magnetic tape recorder is used for data play back. A signal conditioner unit with a built-in analog-to-digital converter was developed and is used to filter, amplify, sum and further prepare the data for transmission to either a strip chart recorder or a digital X-Y plotter through a Monroe 1880 calculator.
