Abstract : This document discloses a digital apparatus for generating a raster whose scan parameters can be altered and controlled by an external program. In addition to standard horizontal sweep, the raster can display a 'waterfall' scan, range bearing sweep and various other geometrical patterns. A selector switch permits the raster scan unit to be selectively connected to either a computer or a control panel which provide the parameters for specifying any one raster. (Author)
