Photo Multiplier Enclosure        

Photo multiplier tubes significantly amplify ambient light.  In this application they are used to detect the small increase in scene illumination as a reentry body enters the atmosphere.  Detection of these changes is used to obtain precise timing of the reentry event.  The system contains four separate tubes, each tuned to a different spectral band. The system includes internal high voltage power supplies and amplifiers.  Input voltages which control PMT gain can be externally controlled.  The PMT system is contained in an environmentally sealed enclosure for extended use in marine and outdoor environments.
