Paper Abstract

Recent events have shown use of video cameras in airborne applications as a major source of intelligence in a war scenario. Until recently, the video camera has been a secondary source of intelligence after the photographic media. The need for readily interpreted, easily understood, and timely information has given the video camera its new role. The development of CCD video cameras is of great importance in this new role. Image motion and field of view are major concerns in video imaging, especially in the airborne application. Gating and selected lenses can greatly reduce the image motion in a video camera for airborne application. The electronically gated airborne video camera is discussed.
