    I'm running short on options and am hoping someone will know where I may
    find tech data on the following oscillator. I've been looking for
    several weeks with no luck. At a minimum I would like to know the
    pin out for this device. Does anyone know how to do a Navair data
    search? Any help would be appreciated...


    Here is what I know about the oscillator...

    Austron# 1630-2R
    NAVAIR# 247AS-CO393-001

    This is a 10MHz oscillator with an octal base on the bottom. Unit is
    dated 1978.

    I recognize the part number as a component from a military (Navy) ATE system,
    the AN/USM247(V) Versatile Avionics Shop Test (VAST). The VAST was a first
    generation Automated Test Equipment, and was built by PRD Harris Corp.
    Depending on the exact configuration, it could test everything from individual
    circuit cards to complete avionics systems, from DC to light frequencies.
    Years ago, I used to maintain a couple of these systems (that was back in the
    early 80s). Sadly, those systems have long been salvaged, and the maintenance
    manuals are likely gone as well.
    Your best bet would be to try to find data on the oscillator on the Defense
    Logistics Agency (DLA) web site. I think it's
    I've moved away from that area, so I can't help you any more with the data.
    Maybe the DLA can help.
