Paper Abstract

Many fields of photographic applications have a specific need for a compact, intensified camera for taking pictures of moving objects under low light level conditions. In obtaining the required camera characteristics there are several trade-offs to be considered. This design is based on maximum camera gain and minimum camera size and weight with electrical gating. The system is capable of hand-held operation at 1/3 full moon. A prototype which has been constructed and is currently undergoing field evaluation is described.
