Ballistic Range Camera

Photonics Spectra
Aug 2010
Specialised Imaging Inc.Request Info
 
The SIR3 ballistic range camera from Specialised Imaging Ltd. is a new generation of ultrahigh-speed camera designed to withstand the harsh environment of the proofing ground and to provide high reliability and image quality. New features include an optical viewfinder to ease image focus and framing while still maintaining the possibility of electronic focusing via an external thin-film transistor monitor and simplified focus button. Using the input from two separate sensors, SureShot real-time hardware enables reliable image capture of unpredictable high-speed objects mid frame. This advance in trigger reliability also enables researchers to narrow the field of view of the camera, thereby increasing the resolution. In addition, it can acquire two separate full-resolution images, providing valuable information on displacement and velocity for ballistics, detonics and impact studies. The rigid all-metal IP54-compliant construction of the compact camera makes it suited to withstand harsh industrial and defense research environments.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
focus
1. The focal point. 2. To adjust the eyepiece or objective of a telescope so that the image is clearly seen by the observer. 3. To adjust the camera lens, plate, or film holder so that the image is rendered distinct. 4. To move an entire microscope body tube relative to a specimen to obtain the sharpest possible image.
frame
1. To center an image or place it in any part of the television screen desired. Also applies to stills. 2. A single image of the connected multiple images on motion-picture film. 3. The size of the copy produced by a facsimile system. 4. In raster-scanned television, the combination of two interlaced field scans, making a single frame.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
thin film
A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
transistor
An electronic device consisting of a semiconductor material, generally germanium or silicon, and used for rectification, amplification and switching. Its mode of operation utilizes transmission across the junction of the donor electrons and holes.
viewfinder
A device, optical or electronic, that may be joined to a camera so that the operator may perceive the scene as the camera does.
