Abstract : The report describes a two-phase program to develop an optimized video output from a wide angle optical probe. Phase I of the program presents data resulting from radiometric and photometric studies of model paints, textures and illumination sources; performance data resulting from tests conducted on the wide angle optical probe; and a preliminary system design. Phase II of the program dealt with system development and evaluaton. The report describes the detailed design of the high resolution 2-inch vidicon camera, including particular emphasis on the wideband video preamplifier and video processing electronics. The evaluation phase of the program includes data concerning the performance of the television system, and the performance of the integrated system including the optical probe, magnifying image intensifier and ultra high resolution 2-inch vidicon camera. The conclusion reached by examination of the resultant data supports the belief that a truly optimized video output from a wide angle optical probe has been achieved. (Author)
