Abstract : The camera includes an input focussing and image cycling system to alternately cycle between a thermal reference and a thermal image, onto a thermally sensitive layer. Means are provided for electronically controlled conversion of thermal images to electron images. Further means, defined in the camera, accomplish electronic image integration and storage. The output portion of the camera includes means to furnish image intensification, after integration and storage. Photographic or electrostatic film is pulled at a constant rate by a drive system positioned at the output of the camera, to expose film to the intensified image. (Author)
