Paper Abstract

Until recently, numeric Film Data Recording has been limited to intermittent type high speed film cameras at speeds up to 500 frames-per-second. A new system has been developed that allows the benefits of numeric film anotation to be incorporated into high speed 16mm and 35mm framing and streak cameras at film speeds up to 11,000 frames-per-second. Externally applied serial data is processed by the system electronics and recorded on each film frame in direct reading numeric form, and in "real time". Principal design objectives were to develop a practical electro-optical-mechanical system that is retrofittable to existing high speed cameras and to assure that the camera's original performance reliability is not compromised by the data recording package.
