Abstract : Operational experience has shown that the AN/AAR-34 produces an excessive number of short duration IR TGT lamp indications on the AN/APS-109 Indicator Panel. A replacement circuit module, which eliminates these extraneous IR TGT lamp indications by delaying turn-on and turn-off of the Track Light Output signal from the AN/AAR-34 has been developed and fabricated under Contract F33615-74-C-1141. Cincinnati Electronics Corporation installed the improved Track Light Output circuit in the AN/AAR-34 Video Signal Processor and modified the AN/APS-109 Indicator Panel to facilitate a comparative evaluation of the original and improved Track Light Output circuits. Engineering support was provided during the Young Venturo SAC O.T. and E program at Plattsburgh AFB. Following the test program both units were demodified and returned to their original configuration. (Author)
