Abstract : This final phase of the program encompassed two tasks: the completion of the development of the ceramic memory for artillery use and the production of 31 models for gun-firing tests. The MOD VI-A and MOD VII bender memories developed represent the developmental optimization of bender type, nonresonant, ceramic memory devices. The ceramic materials deemed most suitable were evaluated, as were geometric configurations; both from economic and technical considerations. Packaging for the high g and temperature environment was developed utilizing either 'solid' or rigid foam epoxies. Improved 'voltage doubler' interrogation circuitry was developed which supplies a drive to the memory approximately twice that available from the (battery) supply line. (Author)
