High Speed Cameras White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Case Study: Vision Research's Phantom Cameras Take The Fight Against Malaria Directly To The Mosquito
    8/31/2010
    By Vision Research, Inc. Vision Research's Phantom v12.1 digital high-speed camera was a crucial component in the development of technology to help fight and eradicate malaria, an epidemic that claims over 1 million people each year. Intellectual Ventures, a global leader in the business of inventions, leveraged the performance of the Phantom v12.1 to analyze the extremely fast movements of a mosquito during flight. With the ability to record at almost 7,000 frames-per-second in 720p high-definition, the camera's capabilities enabled the team to capture never-before-seen visuals and data that proved invaluable in the development of the photonic fence, a solution that leverages an advanced tracking system and laser in killing mosquitoes.
  2. High-Speed Imaging Case Study: Vision Research Digital High-Speed Cameras Will Play A Key Role In The Next-Generation NASA Moon Missions
    7/29/2010
    Just as video was an important component of the Apollo Program, Vision Research digital high-speed cameras will play a key role in the next-generation NASA moon missions. The future of space exploration now resides with NASA's Constellation Program, America's next-generation human spaceflight system that will replace the Space Shuttley, and transport astronauts to the International Space Station, back to the moon and beyond. According to NASA, unlike earlier programs, Constellation will "directly inherit the legacies of both Apollo and the Space Shuttle, using parts and concepts of these earlier programs to build more dependable and economical craft." The Constellation Program includes the new Orion crew vehicle, reminiscent of the crew vehicles of the Apollo program, as well as the Ares rocket that will launch it into space.
  3. White Paper: Infrared Imaging In Engineering Applications
    3/23/2009
    Temperature variations that provide valuable information about heat transfer and fluid phenomena that occur during a mechanical and chemical process stand out clearly in an infrared image. An overview is given for three different mechanical engineering projects currently using infrared imaging to describe high-speed thermal events and provide experimental data for computational models.
