Abstract : Work toward the realization of a practical operational Electron-Beam-Addressed Memory (EBAM) is described. Consideration is given to the design of the various components. The electrostatic microcapacitor or 'mucap' medium is described and analyzed. Operation in the quasi-continuous mode is discussed and its importance in the attainment of device stability and target yield is outlined. Measurements on the storage medium are presented. Two pieces of equipment are described: the SRI-sponsored Analog System, designed for making storage target measurments, and an EBAM module, recently delivered to the USAF Avionics Laboratory. Design, construction, and performance of both systems are discussed. (Author)
