New Developments in High Speed Imaging to Aid Aerospace Testing

By Doreen Clark, Senior Product Manager, Vision Research

Date: Issue 79 - February 2018

Comprehensively testing designs in aerospace can be complex and difficult.  High speed imaging lends a helping hand to understand the dynamics of designs, providing valuable information that may be otherwise difficult or impossible to gather. However, high speed imaging has its own inherent issues – it can require incredible amounts of light, can generate large amounts of data, and can incorporate trade-offs in camera size or features, for example, to achieve core frame rate and image quality capabilities.   

Vision Research, designer and manufacturer of Phantom cameras, has introduced cameras and features to help address issues found in high speed imaging, making the technology more useful for the demanding testing needs found in aerospace.
