[time-nuts] Looking for information on EG&GTS-RFSRubidiumOscillator

I would say the NTS (DOE) ran the tests. EG&G recorded the event. Every test destroyed lots of expensive stuff. Good for EG&G sales. 

I've been in CP-1. Lots of buttons. ;-)

But getting back to the original question,  I wonder if some EG&G parts were just OEMd for the company. That is, parts without a division to lay claim to the design. Maybe the EG&G frequency source is really a rebadged or custom Tracor for instance.

Hi

They ran the tests for the vast majority of the US atomic testing.
