Paper Abstract

The use of streak cameras for high-precision (picosecond) temporal measurements is planned for the Geodynamic Laser Ranging System. This paper analyzes the streak camera parameters which affect chronometry resolution, and three feasible versions of a picosecond chronometry system for space mission applications. Out of the three, the electronosensitive camera is considered to offer the best trade-off with respect to performance, size, and weight.
