Paper Abstract

Generation III image intensifiers, employing gallium arsenide (GaAs)photocathodes, enable high speed gating into sub-nanosecond range. By utilizing high speed gating techniques, a number of important applications are realized in military rugged ground and aviation applications. Recent advancements toward size, weight, and power reduction of gated I2-based systems have have expanded the scope of applicability of these gating techniques into the battery-powered portable platforms. We present a survey of applications that are expanding from military to commercial applications as high speed gated power supply advancements are realized in the industry.
