MOMS is a live lens space camera for multispectral and stereo imaging. It was flown for the first time on a Space Shuttle mission (STS 55) in l993 in this 10-day mission approx. 7 million square km of the earth surface were covered. After the Shuttle flight the camera system was refurbished and adapted to the new environmental conditions onboard the PRIRODA-Module of the Russian MIR Space Station. Additionally, the MOMS-payload was extended by a navigation package consisting of a high precision gyro and a GPS system in order to provide the necessary position and attitude data for photogrammetric evaluation of the image data. MOMS-2P was launched into orbit in May 1996 and started its first operation in October 1996. Until end of 1998, approx. 50 million square km have been covered, mainly in the stereo mode. A tecimical description of the camera system and its operational concept will be presented as well as the present status of data recording. Information how MOMS data can be accessed and ordered will he given.
