  2. Miniature Video Camera Technology for Embedded Probes

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF171009

    The Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) uses water-cooled probes housing remote-head cameras to evaluate and monitor turbine engines. These cameras have traditionally been based on CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors outputting analog NTSC video signals. However, such cameras have numerous shortcomings including the introduction of noise over associated cabling, interlaced output format ...

  8. Alternative Approach to Contact Type Analogue Data Slipring

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141231

    ABSTRACT: Contact type slip rings are frequently the limiting factors in a test and measurement system due to its poor reliability and signal quality issues. A non-contact solution is preferred in many mission critical systems. SA Photonics has developed RODS (Rotational Optical Data System), a fiber optic based non-contact solution that promises higher reliability, better signal integrity, improv ...
