Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Recent automation of acquisition and analysis of velocity data collected by Price meters is presented in this report. Recent improvements to the fiber optic elements for the Price meter and development of electronic/binary counting circuits are discussed. A general description of a portable digital recording system and detailed documentation of its operating procedures are presented. In addition, documentation is provided for (A.) the format of the output magnetic tape generated by the portable digital recording system, and (B.) computer (H635) programs for reading and demultiplexing data on magnetic tape, editing and scaling velocity data, and reducing velocity data to a standard format for use in analysis programs and technical reports.
