Paper Abstract

With the increased applications of television imaging systems in the Department of Defense and Aerospace industries, requirements for recording this information have increased accordingly. Development of television tape recorders usable in airborne applications has essentially paralleled development of these imaging systems and has suffered similar inconsistencies. Because of the typically complex and fragile nature of television recorders, the industry has directed most of its efforts toward commercial and consumer markets and very few equipments are oriented to high environment applications. As high performance airborne video recorder technology is in its infancy, so is an in-depth understanding of these devices by most users. The text philosophy of this paper is to provide a better understanding of rotary head video recorders in a relatively simple but comprehensive manner and to present Echo Science's approach to solving traditional problems common to these devices.
