Paper Abstract

The importance placed on minimum volume for tactical cameras has led to the need for a higher degree of complexity in the next generation systems. Performance requirements for future systems compared with performance demonstrated by current systems (1960's to present) show that improvement in angular resolution as well as size is desired. In discussing these problems, recent studies indicating feasibility of a two-fold advance are referenced; some obvious design problems are noted; and their less obvious consequences are identified. Tomorrow's miniature cameras present a new challenge to the camera designer. The level of component integration is required to be higher than that necessary in the past and, at the same time, reliability and maintainability must be as good or better than today's systems. Such requirements as these are best met by innovative approaches based on proven technology. A new imple-mentation of wide band stabilization is discussed as an example of sophisticated component integration in the miniature camera. The approach offers distinct advantages in system resolution and size.
