Paper Abstract

Optical Disc Mass Storage Systems provide for storage of large quantities of digital data on a relatively compact medium with negligible access delays. Until now, however, all Optical Disc Systems have been designed for laboratory or computer room environments. For many years, RCA has been a leader in production of compact, rugged magnetic recording equipment for use in tactical and other non-benevolent environments. Now, this technology is being applied to Optical Disc Systems and the result is a design of a compact, high-data-rate, high-capacity data recording system for field operation. Discussion topics include system architecture and physical configuration.
