Paper Abstract

In this paper we present current progress in development of new observational instruments for the double station video experiment called MAIA (Meteor Automatic Imager and Analyzer). The main goal of the MAIA project is to monitor activity of the meteor showers and sporadic meteors. This paper presents detailed analysis of imaging parameters based on acquisition of testing video sequences at different light conditions. Among the most important results belong the analysis of opto-electronic conversion function and noise characteristics. Based on these results, requirements for image preprocessing algorithms are proposed.
