A key objective of the DayNight Periscope program was to demonstrate the feasibility of using charge coupled devices to provide low light level, high resolution sensing in periscopes that would solve operational surveillance problems. The procedures used to demonstrate feasibility were two specified investigations, i.e., High Resolution Scanning and Integrating Mode Low Light operation, using a 1 x 1728 linear CCD sensor and a 128 x 128 TDI CCD Integrating Mode Sensor, respectively. In addition, the following design studies were specified 1 analysis of Navy field results to aid in defining an image stabilization system, 2 a design study of real time and replay display configurations, and 3 a preliminary system definition for the CCD Periscope.
