The hsfc pro from The Cooke Corp., Romulus, MI, has a single optical input and consists of an image splitter unit, four intensified CCD camera modules with fast switchable MCP image intensifiers, and high-resolution CCD image sensors. Each module has 12-bit dynamic range, and a high-resolution CCD image sensor features high signal-to-noise ratio and single-photon detection. Four high-speed serial fiber optic data links connect the system to a PC. It can be triggered externally by light or electrical input. The system is suited for imaging of extremely fast events such as hypervelocity impacts, short time physics, ballistics, and combustion imaging.
