Abstract : Tests were performed and incorporated into engineering models to provide solutions to the problems experienced in operational characteristics of lamps being used in the field. The work consisted of redesign of the electrodes and application of new methods of manufacturing and inspection to provide increased life and reliability during operation. A unique design evolved which combines a depressurization sub-system integral with the lamp and compatible with the airborne environment for increased safety for operating personnel. The lamp design was successfully tested to meet the optical and environmental requirements, and a pilot production run successfully completed to provide a manufacturing capability for the military requirements. A plan for emergency mobilization was provided which would increase production to 50 lamps per week. (Modified author abstract)
