HIGH-ALTITUDE TRANSMITTING

E&MP127.002

Stratovision

June 22, 1948 [62248]

Cutaway view of Martin 2-0-2 airliner showing how television and frequency modulation broadcasting equipment will be installed for high-altitude transmitting of programs. A Martin airplane will be modified for further experimental use in the Stratovision system being developed by the Glen L. Martin Company and the Westinghouse Electric Corporation to become the standard airplane for use on coast-to-coast networks. The large cabin space on the Martin 2-0-2 will make possible ample working room around the transmitting panels and will provide a lounge for the crew while the airplane is on station at 25,000 feet.
