Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of the exploratory development of a video frame store memory which can a lower the sensor frame rate to provide increased AJ protection, and b refresh a TV monitor at the normal rate while operating at reduced frame rates. Also, a similar unit for second-generation FLIR systems was investigated to a freeze the display momentarily to give an observer additional time to search for details, and b to improve system sensitivity for the detection of fixed or slowly moving objects by integrating successive frames of video as the image is displayed. This effort is being conducted in parallel with investigations at AFAL to develop a low-cost AJ video data link for advanced RPVs and guided missiles. This exploratory development was divided into two phases. The first phase was devoted to circuit design and module definition. The second phase involved the brassboard fabrication and testing of two prototype video memories for RPV bandwidth reduction systems employing 64K digital CCD memories for the primary frame store function. The primary goal was to realize the imaging system at a minimum of memory cost, size, weight and power dissipation through the use of a common modular packaging approach. Author
