8 October 1980 Production Engineering And Implementation Of A Modular Military Binocular
Author Affiliations +
The U.S. Army's new M19 binocular, which incorporates an unusual modular assembly concept for simplified maintainability, is currently being produced at the rate of 2,000 per month. In this paper, the origin and development by the Army of the modular concept for this binocular are reviewed briefly and performance requirements are summarized. Following this, the manufacturing engineering approach and implementation developed and carried out by the Optics Division of Bell & Howell Company in producing the M-19 binocular are presented.
