The streak tube is intended for low-illuminating fast running processes image registration in streak and multiframe modes. It has a photocathode applied on uviol glass or a fiber-optic disk, focusing electrodes, a compensated electron shutter of deflective type, two pairs of plates that deflect the image in mutually transverse directions, one or two MCP and a blue/green screen applied on a fiber-optic disk
