Abstract
This proposal is for the development of a instrumentation suitable for measuring time-resolved thermodynamic or velocity fluctuations in hypersonic wind tunnel flow. A very high frame rate television type solid state camera capable of capturing images of transient photometric phenomena at framing rates up to ~1,000,000 frames per second currently under development is proposed. In Phase I the conceptual design of a diagnostic instrument based on this type of high framing rate solid state image sensor will be carried out, including parametric studies and feasibility calculations. In Phase II the camera system will be built, installed and demonstrated at Wright Laboratory.
