Paper Abstract

The parameters governing the design of a streak camera based on the Photochron IIC streak tube and using a charge-coupled device as readout is described. The camera is intended to form part of a spaceborne system used to measure the roundtrip times of laser pulses, directed from a satellite to ground-based retroreflectors, so that range can be computed with millimetre accuracy. The possible future use of a custom built circular CCD/diode array, mounted within the vacuum envelope of the tube, is discussed.
