This record documents correspondence regarding a subcontract between Lawrence Radiation Laboratory and Loral Electronics Corporation. It was proposed that purchase order 3427505 be converted to a Regents Subcontract and this request was sent to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission for approval. The scope of work for this project called for the design, development, and construction of two combination switches to provide the permissive link for the central control of nuclear armed weapons. Attached is a letter to A. Koteen, of Loral, from C.L. Blue, of Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, regarding the transmission of copies of the subcontract. Attached is a letter to W.B. Reynolds from C.L. Blue, both of LRL, regarding the conversion of the purchase order to a Regents Subcontract. Attached is a letter to G. Brim, of LRL, from A. Koteen regarding: submitted Interium Technical Report No. 2428-1; contractual modifications; increased funds; minimum volume feasible for the switch; and delivery dates. Also attached are the cost and price analysis sheets submitted by Loral Electronics Corporation. These documents were issued to W.B. Reynolds of Lawrence Radiation Laboratory.
