Abstract:

This report describes achievements of a special film coating and testing program for panchromatic sensitive photographic film for direct optical recording from 350 through 750 nanometers wavelength. A new panchromatic sensitive recording film is described which has suitable sensitivity for photorecording at aerial exposure index values from 3 to 5. This film is unique in that the exposed latent images may be converted to visible metallic silver image form using only thermal processing instead of wet chemical processing normally required for silver halide type recording films. The report also describes the results from limited aerial photographic flight testing of this new film in an RF-101 Tactical Reconnaissance Aircraft in a standard Air Force KS-87 aerial camera. Printed replicas are included in this report of photographic results obtained from camera exposures.
