Paper Abstract

A high resolution laser image recorder/processor for reconnaissance applications has been designed with an integral wet film processor providing rapid access to the imagery. This system operates over a wide range of film velocities with nearly instant film velocity change capability. The laser recorder/processor system is described. Specific details are given on the film and processing against a five-second development requirement. The method of obtaining consistent density over a 7 to 1 range of film velocities is explained in detail. A linear or definable density over a range of three density units is achieved with the equipment. Examples of product output are shown, demon-strating its high resolution, high quality, low grain, and large density range.
