Paper Abstract

As a photographic system, television has three unique advantages: 1) It provides a real-time, remote, visual display of the object field; 2) a hard copy of the imagery can be obtained at the remote station without actual access to the TV camera; and 3) the video signal from the TV camera can be digitized directly and thus providing an excellent potential for real-time geometric measurement. Largely because of these reasons, television has been used extensively in space exploration, in medical, biological and ballistic research, and in the supervision of industrial processes. Because of its high sensitivity, television is also used in astronomical and underwater observations. However, in all of these applications, TV imageries have been used primarily for qualitative analysis.
