Abstract : The purpose of the work is to investigate the critical mechanization parameters for a highly reliable Vertical Display System (VDS) with the overall goal of providing increased reliability. The three basic functional subunits are identified as the CRT indicator, the digital symbol generator, and the digital scan converter (DSC). Of the three major subunits comprising the VDS, the symbol generator offers the greatest potential for a very substantial gain in reliability.
