Abstract : The objective of this program is to establish a production capability for a microcircuit temperature compensated oscillator (MC-TCXO) suitable for use as the reference oscillator in advanced SSB communications equipment. Primary characteristics of the MCTCXO are small size, low power consumption, high reliability, and frequency-temperature stability of + or - 2.5 x 10 to the -6th power over the range of -40 C to +80 C. The contract will be accomplished in two steps. Step I will encompass the MCTCXO design, development engineering and fabrication of the tooling and production equipment necessary to obtain first article approval. A pilot run of 440 units (110 each for four frequencies) will be accomplished to verify production procedures, tooling, and methods. The work in Step II will consist of all production planning necessary to expand the production rate to 100 units per eight hour shift on a mass production basis short of any procurements or actual manufacturing.
