Paper Abstract

The systems described in this presentation relate to new forms of television camera assemblies in which arrays of sensors may be preselected to detect' scenes emitting or reflecting infrared rays or visible light or other wave forms including ultrasonic waves. In the first of the basic forms of arrangements, each element of an array of sensors or transducers is connected to a corresponding element of a second array comprising photosensors. The second array of photosensors is scanned by light originating from a light scanner or cathode ray tube to connect elements of the array of sensors or transducers to output terminals in sequence. A second form of arrangement involves the application of 'sequential electro-optical systems' comprising 'feedback photoconverters' for scanning by connecting elements of arrays of sensors or transducersto output terminals in sequence. The assemblies described form parts of the author/presenter's inventive projects as previously described and featured in specifications including U K Patent Specification Number 1 477 730 and in summaries of "G 0 Okikiolu - Bulletin of Inventions and Summary
