Abstract
This paper discusses the Engineering and Scientific aspects of a spacecraft television system designed to perform preliminary topographic reconnaissance of portions of the surface of Mars. It consists of a single camera shuttered system utilizing a specially developed slow scan vidicon. Engineering mechanization will be discussed in terms of the mission con straints and desired scientific results. Test and calibration techniques will be discussed and typical system performance capabilities illustrated.
