Paper Abstract

This report describes the United states Coast Guard (USCG) Research and Development Center's (R&DC) development of a prototype nighttime photography system, NITE Is (nighttime investigation of telephoto equipment for identification), for use about USCG aircraft. Combining the speed and aerial coverage capability of the HU-25A with a fast, nighttime photography system would be a powerful tool in presenting case documentation again illegal activity. Furthermore, the images from this system must be capable of providing positive ID of suspect registration numbers and/or evidence quality images of suspect activity.
