    Released Friday;
    NASA's Johnston Space Center (JSC) has a requirement for a high frame 
    rate, large-format Charge Coupled Device (CCD) camera system which 
    will be used as the detector on a one meter diameter telescope to be 
    located on Legan, an island in the Kwajalein Atoll located in the 
    western pacific.
    JSC intends to purchase the items from Spectral Instruments because 
    the firm specializes in the development and manufacture of CCD 
    cameras. The firm has access to the newest E2V chips that meets 
    NASA's imaging requirement and their SI 1100 Series camera head is 
    the only regular production unit with a foot print (form factor) 
    large enough to accept the 4K E2V CCD.
    Lastly, the firm is highly experienced in cryo-cooled cameras, which 
    do not require human interaction or maintenance to maintain low 
    background noise.
