Abstract
Space Shuttle will be using a field-sequential color television system for the first few missions but the present plans are to switch to a NTSC color TV system for future missions. The field-sequential color TV system uses a modified black and white camera, producing a TV signal with a digital bandwidth of about 60 Mbps. This article discusses the characteristics of the Shuttle TV systems and proposes a bandwidth compression technique for the field-sequential color TV system that could operate at 13 Mbps producing a high fidelity signal. The proposed bandwidth compression technique is based on a two-dimensional DPCM system that utilizes temporal and spectral, as well as spatial correlation inherent in the field-sequential color TV imagery. The proposed system requires about 60 watts and less than 200 integrated circuits.
