  abstract     = {{In the framework of the LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU) project, the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) accelerator at CERN is undergoing a profound upgrade including a new high-energy beam dump. The new Target Internal Dump Vertical Graphite (TIDVG#5) is designed to withstand an average dumped beam power as high as 235 kW to cope with the increased intensity and brightness of the LIU beams whose energies in the SPS range from 14 to 450 GeV. Considering such highly demanding specifications, the constant monitoring of the device’s status and the characteristics of the beams that are dumped to it is of utmost importance to guarantee an efficient operation with little or no limitations. While the former is ensured with several internal temperature sensors, a Beam Observation system based on a scintillating screen and a digital camera is installed to extract the profile of the beam dumped in TIDVG#5 for post mortem analysis. This paper describes the overall system that uses the BTV images to contribute to the safe and efficient operation of the SPS Beam Dump System (SBDS) and hence the accelerator.}},
