MaKzng television nistory, JirsT coverage of air-sea maneuvers demonstrates
             value of research by RCA Laboratories to our armed forces.
Picture the advantage-in military oper-
ations-when commanding officers can
watch planes, troops, ships maneuver at
tong range ...
  This new use of television was seen by
millions when the aircraft carrier Leyte-as
Task Force TV-maneuvered at sea before
a "battery" of 4 RCA Image Orthicon tele-
vision cameras.
  Seventy planes - Bearcats, Avengers,
Corsairs-roared from Leyte's flight deck
and catapult ... dived low in mock attack
... fired rockets. And an escorting de-
stroyer stood by for possible rescues.
  Action was beamed by radio to shore,
then relayed over NBC's Eastern television
network. Reception was sharp and clear on
home television receivers...
Said high officials: "The strategic impor-
tance of television in naval, military, or
air operations was dramatically revealed"
. . ."There is no doubt that television will
serve in the fields of intelligence and
  Use of television as a means of military
communications is only one way in which
radio and electronic research by RCA Lab-
oratories serves the nation. All facilities of
RCA and NBC are available for develop-
ment and application of science to national
security ... in peace as well as war.
