Paper Abstract

This paper describes a television camera tube developed for use in aircraft flight simulators. These simulators are used to provide training for low altitude flying using a model board to duplicate the terrain to be encountered. The tube was designed to havc high resolution and low geometric distortion characteristics while operating in an environment providing low input irradiation. This was accomplished by coupling a high performance image i tensifier (WX-31836) to a high resolution two inch vidicon (WX-5168).
