The maturing camera industry has been employing a RS 170 formatted Image Intensified CCD Camera. This left some users with limited image resolutions. In a typical RS 170 camera the CCD sensor's resolving pixel density is in the order of 500 X 400 squared pixels. To surmount this limitation for a particular user, a high resolution image intensified CCD camera was developed. This new high resolution camera's active image plane is 1096 X 961 squared pixels. It was designed to operate from overcast starlight to daylight. Other requirements imposed upon the design were the form factor and the camera size. These requirements have lead to a small and uniquely shaped camera. Although the camera was designed to meet a specific customer's needs, rather than the RS 343 specifications, the camera is compatible with the RS 343 format.
