Abstract : The primary mission of the Frequency Control and Timing Branch of the U.S. Army Electronics Technology and Devices Laboratory is to advance the state of the art in quartz crystal resonators and oscillators in order to meet the requirements of military users. Secondary missions include consultative support to project managers and systems designers and the maintenance of the military specifications for quartz crystal resonators and crystal oscillators. In the course of fulfilling the above missions and activities, comprehensive test facilities have been established at ETDL for quartz crystal resonators and oscillators. The purpose of this paper is to outline the capabilities of the laboratory, present the results of some investigations, and offer to DOD-sponsored users our assistance with the testing, selection, specification and development, when necessary, of crystal oscillators.
