Abstract
YHIS EFFORT IS DIRECTED TO THE DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND INITIAL TESTING OF A MINIATURIZED, SOLID-STATE, SHUTTERED VIDEO CAMERA FOR SPECIAL DEFENSE USE. ITS POTENTIAL USES IN BOTH MILITARY AND CIVILIAN SECTORS ARE FAR REACHING. SHUTTERED VIDEO TECHNOLOGY IS RELATIVELY NEW. MUCH OF THAT TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY THE OFFERER OF THIS PROPOSAL DURING THE PAST FEW YEARS. SHUTTERED VIDEO BRINGS TOGETHER THE BEST FEATURES OF CONVENTIONAL FILM TECHNIQUES (PHOTOGRAPHIC CAMERAS) AND VIDEO TAPE TECHNIQUES (ELECTRONIC CAMERAS) WHILE AVOIDING CERTAIN DISADVANTAGES OF BOTH. THE PRIMARY ADVANTAGES OFFERED BY EXISTING SHUTTERED VIDEO CAMERAS ARE THE CLARITY OF THE FILM-BASED CAMERAS IN SLOW OR STOP MOTION REPLAY AND THE REAL-TIME VIEWING CAPABILITY OF CONVENTIONAL VIDEO CAMERAS. SHUTTERED VIDEOOME CAMERAS CURRENTLY IN USE ARE STILL TOO LARGE AND CUMBERSOME FOR MANY APPLICATIONS, ESPECIALLY SOME MILITARY APPLICATIONS WHERE WEIGHT, SIZE AND RUGGEDNESS ARE CRITICAL.
