Paper Abstract

This paper describes the construction of a high-speed PtSi infrared charge-coupled device (IRCCD) camera system funded by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command (TACOM) for recording periodic events in the infrared. A brief discussion of PtSi infrared detection, and an analysis of expected signal contrast and NE(Delta) T of the device are presented. Integration times to less than 1 ms and the ability to record frames based on an external trigger allow this setup to achieve effective frame rates of over 1000 frames per second. The use of a personal computer (PC) as a controller for CCD clocking and video capture results in a flexible camera system design.
