Abstract : Efforts were continued on a development program that will lead to the design of an electrical-output electron-beam-scanned camera tube with electronically- immobilized electron image upon its scanned target for television reconnaissance applications from a moving vehicle, e.g., and airborne, high-speed, low-altitude carrier. The technique of gating the meshless image-section in the IMC-Orthicon (IMCO) has been greatly simplified by pulsing the photocathode (PC) rather than the anodes of the system. A high-voltage diode-clamp to secure proper voltage levels during pulsing is described. Image-coincidence testing by electronic switch gives improved results by a control of ellipticity which acts upon the orthogonality of deflection. A moving-image film transport has been constructed, along with a slow-scan generator for motion compensation by IMCO. (Author)
