Paper Abstract

A high resolution laser film printer is being developed for the United States Air Force. The printer is a high speed black and white image recorder, the Fire 240, which is being highly modified by the manufacturer, MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates, Ltd. (MDA). The printer will output 40,000 picture elements (pixels) and 40,000 lines on a film format of 9" x 9". To preserve the high quality of the digital aerial imagery inputs, the printer must meet stringent radiometric and geometric specifications.
