Paper Abstract

RCA has developed a High Resolution Laser Beam Recorder (HRLBR) image generator for tactical operation. This ruggedized film recorder uses 9.5 " film and is designed for tactical shelters. It contains an in-line processor for dry silver film operation providing non-chemical, almost immediate output usable imagery. It also has a take-up cassette for wet film off-line processing operation. The first application was for 8000 picture elements per scan but can be conveniently scaled to handle 20,000 picture elements per scan. The image data input is computer compatible with many extra control and computer interface setup characteristics. An additional unique characteristic is the ability to directly record raster format image data on film at any angle between +45° from normal to provide for scene orthogonalization. This HRLBR has application to many tactical/reconnaissance sensors. Its features and characteristics will be reviewed.
