Author Affiliations +
Although the pyroelectric vidicon infrared sensitive television camera has been available for over a decade, development of the tubes and cameras did not cease with the demonstration of the first imagery. This paper describes firstly the progress which has been made in the UK towards a higher performance vidicon tube, and secondly the improvements to cameras which were necessary in order to obtain the optimum performance from the tubes. Operation of the cameras in a number of situations will be described.
