Paper Abstract

This paper describes the techniques and concepts used in the development and construction of a gated, intensified, solid state video camera. This state-of-the-art camera provides submicrosecond image capture with excellent resolution and minimal blooming. The paper addresses the technical and practical considerations which drove the camera design and which affect the value of this instrument for both observation and measurement applications. The sensor is based on a gated, custom-designed, microchannel plate intensification of a C.I.D. (Charge Injection Device), self-scanning imaging array. The sensor operates in the visible and near-infrared (IR) spectrum, and is capable of full bandwidth image capture at sub-microsecond speeds. It can be operated in a truly asynchronous random event mode, while maintaining a standard NTSC output format. The camera is described in terms of its architecture, physical structure, application, performance and design characteristics.
